Happy World Bicycle Day!

We hope you got out on your bikes today wherever you were! After our 100 mile South Downs bike packing trip this week and mountain bike camps for kids, we actually went to recce new ride routes on two feet! 
Cycling UK have a 100 mile challenge from the 5th – 11th June, who is joining in? We’re going to try and get in 100 miles within the week between coaching and guiding sessions. Bike Week 100 is all about workplace cycling, but why stop at just cycling too and from work, getting out on your bike has massive benefits for your physical and mental health as well as reducing your carbon footprint.

The facts (from Cycling UK)

  1. Transport is the UK’s most emitting sector, making up 24% of emissions in 2020
  2. Commuting accounts for 98% of an individual’s work-related carbon footprint
  3. 45.1% of UK commuters travel to work by car, and only 2% do so by bike
  4. As many as three million commuters travel as little as two kilometres to work, making an uptick in active commuting one of the most actionable ways to drive down corporate emissions
  5. On top of the environmental benefits, evidence indicates that an active workforce is a happier, healthier and more productive one
Share your rides with us using our hashtag #architectsofadventure and tag us @beyondthemudmtb on Instagram and we will pick two lucky winners who manage the 100 miles in the week to win Beyond The Mud tee shirts!
