On your bike! Cycle September is here

Gift Card Manager Shane Spence and Communications Manager Molly McGreevy are taking part in Cycle September.

Cycle September is almost here and at the BID two members of our team have already signed up and are clocking up the miles on two wheels.

Cycle September is running from 1-30 September 2018 and we’d like to invite all our businesses to take part. Sign up to join a free, fun, friendly competition to get more people on bikes. Any organisation can register for free, and staff can join the team. Once signed up, start logging rides and watch the miles add up.

It doesn’t matter if you ride every day or you haven’t been on a bike in years, everyone is invited and you only have to ride a bike for ten minutes to take part. Cycling can make you happier, healthier and wealthier and it makes our city cleaner, greener and more liveable.

In South Yorkshire 240 organisations have signed up so far and more than 2,600 people have cycled over a million miles.

It only takes 30 seconds to register at If your company isn’t registered yet, add it to the list and once you’ve done that, your colleagues can join and you can enter into some friendly competition with similar sized companies.

There are also some amazing prizes up for grabs for riding and encouraging, including holidays, bikes, gear, vouchers – even a trip to the Grand Canyon or New Zealand!

As well as some friendly competition between organisations, regions and cities across the UK are going head to head, and we wouldn’t want Leeds to do better than Sheffield would we?
