What is Bike Week?
Bike Week is a yearly international event which promotes the health and environmental benefits of cycling. In the UK, the event is delivered each year by Cycling UK, and it encourages a quarter of a million people to get involved and consider switching to cycling to get around in their everyday lives.
The event also aims to highlight several of the UK’s problems that cycling would be able to fix – such as air pollution, obesity, poor mental health and traffic congestion.
Why is cycling so Important?
- According to Cycling UK, cycling can have amazing health benefits – greatly lowering your risk of developing cardiovascular disease, as well as cancer.
- It has been proven that cycling is also beneficial for mental health, easing feelings of anxiety, depression and stress. Hopping on your bike for as little as 10 minutes a day can help your brain release endorphins, making you feel happier and more at ease in your everyday life, as suggested by Healthline.
- Cycling also has many environmental benefits – as highlighted by Biofriendly Planet, it reduces air pollution, while also lowering the consumption of nonrenewable fuels.
What we are doing to help
To celebrate Bike Week, 100% of the profits made by Buy Rope on the 5th of June will be donated to an organisation or charity focused on promoting cycling as a part of a healthier and environmentally friendly lifestyle.
