Bike Week 2022
Bike Week 2022 is taking place between the 6th and the 12th of June and is all about celebrating the many benefits that cycling brings, both personally and collectively.
From adopting cycling as our chosen method of commuting or simply getting back on the saddle as a leisure activity, Bike Week, delivered by Cycling UK, presents us with the opportunity to come together and discover the wealth of positives of biking.
The importance of Bike Week’s message cannot be understated when taking into account the fact that, for example, a person is 45% less susceptible to cancer and 46% less susceptible to cardiovascular disease if they cycle to work.
That goes without mentioning the fantastic environmental and financial impact made when taking up cycling; switching one journey a day to bike reduces an individual’s carbon footprint by 0.5 tonnes over the course of a year, while an increase of all cycle journeys from 2% to 25% by 2050 would see a collective saving of a whopping £248 billion.
