Get ready for the Bike Month Challenge

People who live and work in Bracknell Forest are encouraged to dust off their bikes and ride into spring with Love to Ride’s Bike Month Challenge this May.

The challenge is simple. Participants set themselves a riding goal for the month of May and log their rides on Love to Ride until they achieve it. Whether it’s 5 or 500 miles, riding once a week, or pledging to cycle more instead of drive, the aim is to get more people, of all abilities, cycling.

To encourage riders, once the riding goal is set, participants will be entered into a £2,000 prize draw. If they log a ride towards their goal, they could win another £2,000 prize. If they achieve their goal before Bike Month (Monday 1 May), they have the chance to win another £2,000 prize!

For those who are new to cycling, the Love to Ride site has guidance to help them cycle to success, as well as an interactive platform where fellow riders can share stories to support one another.

Andrew Hunter, Executive Director, Place, Planning and Regeneration, said:

“We’re excited to support the Love to Ride Bike Month Challenge and encourage residents to get back into cycling.

“Not only is cycling great for your physical and mental health, but it’s also a fantastic, eco-friendly way to explore the beautiful areas of Bracknell Forest, using our many dedicated cycle routes.

“Local workplaces can also sign up and get into the competitive spirit with fellow colleagues.”
