Cycle to Work Day is back for 2021!

Join us on Thursday 5th August 2021 for Cycle to Work Day where we celebrate all the benefits of cycling. Whether you are working from home, in the office or somewhere in between, we want you to get involved!

Cycle to Work Day is a fantastic opportunity for everyone to experience the benefits of cycling first hand - from improving your finances, boosting your wellbeing to improving your health. Everyone can get involved no matter how fast (or slow) you cycle or how far you travel.

There is no better way to start the day than with some exercise. Exercise causes your body to release endorphins which boost the mood and helps us to feel happy for the rest of the day.

Cycling to work can save you a considerable amount of money. Instead of spending money on public transport or the upkeep of a car, why not burn off those extra calories by cycling to work? The savings will soon add up and best of all you’re making a positive impact on your health.


Health benefits of cycling:

  • Decrease stress levels
  • Improve coordination and posture
  • Increase muscle strength and flexibility
  • Decrease body fat levels
  • Increase cardiovascular fitness
  • Improve joint mobility
  • Improve your mental well-being


It’s easy to get started and you don’t need anything more than your bike. This year, we’re taking inspiration from the Dutch where cycling has become completely normalized and it is now a very popular mode of transport in the Netherlands. Locals wear comfortable clothes rather than splashing out on expensive specialized cycling gear.

With this in mind we’re encouraging everyone to cycle to work in whatever gear they would normally wear to work. We don’t care what you wear as long as it’s comfortable while you’re cycling. #whatevergearyourein

So, hop on your bike on Thursday 5th August 2021 and join the Pharmacy Planet team for Cycle to Work Day 2021.
