Multi gold medal winning Paralympic cyclist, Dame Sarah Storey, is championing National Cycle to Work day and invites everyone to don their cycle helmets, get their bikes out of the shed and cycle to work.

With over 760,000 regular cycle commuters, this national day is a chance to add to the number of cyclists on the road to encourage the sport and to help the environment.

Last year's event saw 20,000 commuters ride their bike and the hope is, that this year they want this number to double.

Will you be taking part? offers many ways in which you can make a difference:

  • Promise to get in the saddle on September 4th by pledging miles for cycle to work day here:
  • Share on your social media pages and encourage your friends, family and colleagues to sign up and get involved.
  • If you know a wannabe cyclist in need of a new bike, let them know about the cycle to work scheme.
  • Ask your employer to get behind the day by offering staff that ride a free coffee and croissant as part of Britain's Biggest Bike Breakfast.
