Cycle September is the global event bringing together riders of every level to promote the benefits of cycling. The aim of the month is simple; to get more people riding. It’s not about riding the most miles, it’s about encouraging others to join in, helping their workplace climb up the leaderboards, and riding for health, happiness and fun.
Cycling brings a wide range of sustainability, cost-saving, health, and wellbeing benefits. Encouraging more people to ride means fewer cars on the road, lower CO2 emissions, a reduction in fuel costs, and an improvement in the overall physical and mental health.
Cycle September provides people with a fun and engaging way to meet their wellness and sustainability goals simply by cycling. And for those who are new to riding or hopping in the saddle for the first time in years, Cycle September will connect them with other riders and provide the support and guidance they need to ride with confidence.
This September, we want to bring all the glorious benefits of bike riding to Salford. Even a short ride can help to build fitness, improve mental health, improve sleep, save money and protect the planet. And by riding during Cycle September, you could win prizes while helping our University climb the leaderboards.
