The Love to Ride Challenge

Love to Ride is an online cycling encouragement platform, with regular challenges, news and cycle specific information. Signing up and creating a workplace team is a great way to create an online community for the cyclists in your workplace. Once you have invited others to join you can message the group via the platform and use it to promote challenges, events and anything else relevant. During challenges you can compete against other workplaces, win fantastic prizes and encourage staff to cycle more and be healthier.

Love to Ride runs four challenges each year, with the main event in September.

  • Ride Anywhere week (March)
  • Bike Month (June)
  • Cycle September (September)
  • Winter Wheelers (December)

Travel to Work Survey

The Travel to Work Survey takes place each year in March for 1 week, and runs across in Bristol, Bath and North East Somerset and South Gloucestershire only. the West of England. We have over 15,000 people take part each year which helps us to build a robust dataset of how people are travelling across the region.

  • Employers use the results to support their site Travel Plan and also to create business cases for improved or additional facilities to support staff such as new cycle storage or Electric Vehicle (EV) charging points.

    All employers who participate and receive over 30 responses receive an individual report along with raw data and this is also the case for each employer’s site with over 30 responses.

  • The four West of England councils along with the West of England Combined Authority use this data for planning future transport and housing needs.

    Reports are created for the West of England along with each local authority and reports based on locations.

    Each authority’s Business Engagement and Economic Development Teams use the data from the survey to work with employers and understand how they can support them and transport issues affecting staff travel.
