Join Others Across Devon and #ChooseCycling This June for Bike Month
Whether you are travelling to work, for shopping or exercising, #ChooseCycling to get around this June for Bike Month!
Devon County Council is working with Love to Ride Devon to support Bike Month throughout June. And to encourage people to get on their bikes.
Bike Month is a great way to get back into cycling and get around on two wheels, while maintaining social distancing and staying active. It can help improve your physical and mental health, gets you outside, and helps fit exercise into your day by riding to work or to your local shops. It can also help avoid congestion.
On top of that, you’ll be entered into prize draws for logging your rides and encouraging others to log theirs. Prizes include bike shop vouchers and a weekly prize of £500 towards your chosen Bikes for Key Workers or Community Coronavirus Support initiative.
Here’s How to Get Involved
Everyone over 16 years of age is invited to take part regardless if you have just started cycling or you cycle regularly. You can get involved in Bike Month by:
- Staying connected with your colleagues. Register yourself and your workplace and invite colleagues to join the fun from your organisational profile page
- Log your rides by either entering your rides manually or by connecting to your preferred fitness app.
- Set up a social group with friends and family to stay connected online
- Inspire others to go for a ride by sharing your cycling stories or pics from your latest ride
- Encourage your workplace or group to cycle more and set a collective goal or set yourself a personal cycling challenge
To join others all across Devon who are taking part in Bike Month, simply register at Love to Ride Devon and start logging your rides today!
