Virtual Cycle totaliser: 0km
Join us this Road Safety Week as we aim to collectively cycle 9740km to represent and raise awareness for the 9740 cyclists and motorcyclists who are killed or seriously injured on our roads each year .
This national event is taking place from the 19th to 25th November, and we need your help!
We are looking for participants to ride static exercise bikes across the UK to clock up the kilometres to help us reach target total of 9,740km
How to get involved
There are two main ways you can get involved:
Being Bike Smart
Bike Smart is the message at the heart of this year’s Road Safety Week, focusing on the safety of those on two wheels. Taking place between the 19th – 25th November and coordinated by Brake, Road Safety Week seeks to raise public awareness over road safety, acting as the driver for positive change on our roads.
The number of cyclists in the UK is increasing at a rapid pace, however, those on two wheels are among the most vulnerable UK road users. More than a third of people killed or seriously injured on UK roads are those travelling by bike (either bicycle or motorcycle and
more than 100 bike riders are injured every day in needless, preventable crashes.
