Bike Week 2014 is perfect preparation for Workplace Law’s Le Ride Week

Bike Week 2014, which kicks off tomorrow (14 June) and runs until 22 June, is an annual opportunity to promote cycling, and show how cycling can easily be part of everyday life by encouraging ‘everyday cycling for everyone’.

Demonstrating the social, health and environmental benefits of cycling, the week aims to get people across the UK to give it a go, and we at Workplace Law are planning to get out on our bikes in preparation for Le Ride Week.

Bike Week is the biggest nationwide cycling event in the UK and encourages over half a million people to join in the events, rethink their everyday journeys and switch to cycling as the most convenient way to get around. There are already hundreds of events planned for the extravaganza, which can be seen here.

During the week of 5-12 July, the staff at Workplace Law will be cycling the distance of the UK leg of the Tour de France (549 miles) as we aim to raise £3,000 for our chosen charity for 2014, Global Generation.

Each member of staff is pledging to cycle a number of miles, ranging from one to 100 during the week, and can complete their miles while commuting to work, in their own time, or on one of the exercise bikes that will be situated in both our Cambridge and London offices.

As well as getting out on our bikes to participate in Bike Week 2014, we will also be releasing a new film next week which looks in more detail at our upcoming cycling exploits, so keep an eye out for that on our website and via social media. You can find us on Twitter here.
