When we teamed up with B’Twin and Decathlon UK to launch our Get Britain Riding campaign earlier this summer the goal was pretty simple – to get more people on bikes. And the great news is that it’s working – so far we’ve recruited over 25,000 riders and more than 14-million miles have been pledged!
Of course, our work isn’t done and we want to make even more cyclists this summer. The idea for Get Britain Riding is pretty easy – if you’re already a cyclist we want you to encourage non-riding friends, colleagues and family members to join you for a ride by making a pledge on our Get Britain Riding page. It can be long or short, it doesn’t matter as long as they’re on a bike. Signing up and pledging riders is simple and might even win you a B’Twin Ultra 920 CF Carbon worth £1899. Simply click here to get involved.
We realise that new riders in particular are keen to get as much information and inspiration as possible so we’ve teamed up with our colleagues on Bikeradar to create a ton of Get Britain Riding content. We’d love you to share all of this great info with you new riding buddies – click here to see what’s on offer!
Finally why not join the Get Britain Riding Strava club? Club members are currently racking up a total of around 50,000 miles a week. Join them and you’ll be able to see how other riders are getting on, find Get Britain Riding news and take part in friendly club competitions.
Rob has been pedalling Cycling Plus since 2007. His first proper road bikes were a Raleigh Sprint in the early 1980s and then a Trek 1000 in 1999. A former competitive runner, Rob has repeatedly threatened to become a competitive cyclist in every discipline from time-trailling to hill climbing to bike polo. We're still waiting.
