Cycle to Work Day is for absolutely everyone. It doesn’t matter if you haven’t cycled in years or have never cycled at all. This is just about giving it a go.
Planning your cycle route to work
Like Google Maps, the Bike Hub app gives sat-nav instructions as you ride along. There are lots of ways to attach a phone to the handlebar of your bike – Quad Lock is good. With the phone visible and, with the volume turned to maximum, audible, you can set off for work on a morning with no further ado. You’ll even get an estimated journey time. Read more here.
Cycling on main roads
Cycling is generally permissible on all roads except motorways. In themselves, major roads are fine by bike. They’re direct. They’re better maintained, with potholes fixed sooner and surfaces treated first when it’s icy. Read more here.
Cycle to work with less haste and more speed
There are various reasons why you might want to get to and from work quicker. Maybe you’ve got a longer commute. Perhaps an earlier start or regular after-work commitments? Or maybe you want a little more time in bed in the morning. Read more here.
