Bike to Work Day is an annual event that promotes the bicycle as an option for commuting to work. It is held in the Spring in a variety of locations.
Let’s celebrate the Bike Week, the week that includes the Bike-to-Work Day, in May, and the World Bicycle Day, on June 3.
Covid-19 has changed the way we live, work and travel. As we adapt to the new normal, we all have a responsibility to consider the steps we can take to stay safe. Now is the time for you to bike to work. Cycling is an alternative to public transport which supports social distancing. It won’t gridlock our cities and streets. And it reduces the impact of pollution on your local community.
Lockdown has forced massive and rapid change on us all.
We are experiencing long term shifts in the way businesses operate, how workers travel and what people do to exercise. As we look to the future, we know we cannot simply revert to our old ways and, in some cases, this may not be a bad thing.

For many, the bicycle offers a straightforward solution to these new and unique problems: Easy to maintain social distancing, Strengthens the immune system or Keeps communities pollution free.
