Remember, remember...It's Cycle September!

As part of its mission to promote greater levels of cycling in Southampton, My Journey has teamed up with Love to Ride, a specialist global web and app based platform that gets more people travelling on two wheels.

The partnership commences with Cycle September, a fun, free competition to encourage more people to cycle. Running throughout the month of September, it’s completely free for everyone who lives and works in Southampton – and their workplaces – to take part.

Cycle September is based on a Workplace Cycle Challenge format which rewards workplaces with the highest levels of participation in the competition. However, it’s not only workplaces that can take part - anyone is invited to join in, whether they are a seasoned cyclist or a complete beginner. In fact, you only need to cycle for a minimum of ten minutes to be entered into a draw to win some amazing prizes, including holidays, bikes and much more.

There will be friendly competition on local, national and global leader boards in seven size categories of workplaces. Those with the highest percentage of staff riding a bike in September will win in their category. Individuals will also be eligible to win prizes for riding and encouraging others.

To take part in Cycle September, individuals simply need to register on the Love to Ride website

Participants can choose to enter their rides manually or by linking a cycling app such as RideReport, Strava, Map My Ride or Edomondo. The site enables members to set themselves goals, track their mileage, earn badges, share photos and encourage others to ride, as well as allowing workplaces to incentivise their staff to ride and monitor cycling participation at their sites.
