Cycle September

The aim of Cycle September is to help more people to enjoy the fun and freedom of cycling and to access the support they need to ride for transport.

Cycle September - The Facts!

  • Cycle September is based on a tried and tested format that has engaged more than 517,000 people worldwide and helped 121,000 people take up riding or get back in the saddle.
  • You can take part as an individual, with your workplace and with your cycling club or social cycling group.
  • Individuals and their workplaces will compete on local, national and global leaderboards to see who can earn the most points.
  • Points are earned for every mile and day you ride plus every person you encourage.
  • You could win bikes, gear, restaurant vouchers and lots of other great prizes - plus if you encourage your company to sign up and your team tops the national leaderboard at the end of September, you could win Cyclehoop equipment for your workplace!

Why take part?

There are a bunch of benefits for taking part in Cycle September. Individually, for your organisation, and for our planet, riding helps to...

  • make us happier and healthier
  • make us more energetic and productive
  • save us money, and our organisations money too - through fewer sick days, lower car parking costs and increased productivity.

Organisations that take part in Cycle September will gain access to:

  • a fun team-building and staff engagement programme that's easy to run
  • support to achieve your organisation's sustainability goals
  • a way to monitor cycling to your sites and help your staff to be more active and environmentally friendly
  • track and measure stats across the organisation and see how much CO2 you save to measure the impact of your staff cycling

You can take part in 3 easy steps:

  1. To register and for further information: lovetoride.net/westlothian
  2. Join your company or invite your workplace to register (you can join or register a group or ride solo too!)
  3. Log rides manually in September or connect your favourite cycling app (Strava, MapMyRide or Endomondo). Your rides will be recorded automatically and will sync your last 30 days of riding!
