2023 marks the 100th annual Bike Week.

Posted on 05 June 2023


This year, the UK's largest cycling awareness week is not only celebrating its anniversary but the power of active travel for all. The aim of the week is to encourage as many people as possible to choose a bike instead of a car.

So, what are you waiting for? There are so many reasons to take part!


Physical Benefits

Get active and stay fit. Cycling can help to protect you from serious diseases such as stroke, heart attack, some cancers, depression, diabetes, obesity, and arthritis. [1]


Mental Benefits

Regular cycling isn’t just good for your physical health, it also benefits your mental wellbeing by reducing stress and improving your mood, productivity, and sleep quality. [2]


Financial Benefits

Cycling can provide several financial benefits, both in the short term and long term. Cycling is an inexpensive mode of transportation compared to driving or taking public transport, saving you money on fuel, parking fees, and public transport fares. Find out how much you could be saving with the Halfords Cyculator.


Environmental Benefits

By swapping the car or public transport and cycling instead, you can reduce your carbon footprint.

Did you know?

-       20 bikes can be parked in the same space as one car.

-       It takes around 5% of the materials and energy used to make a car to build a bike. And a bike produces zero pollution.

Bike Week 2023 is an exciting event that offers a range of physical, mental, environmental, and financial benefits. So, whether you're a seasoned cyclist or a beginner, there's something for everyone to help encourage you to bike instead of taking the car.


Get your bike ready and join the fun!
