The World’s Biggest Bike Ride is back for Bike Week!

It's not about distance or duration, it’s about giving it a go. Any kind of cycle ride counts no matter how far you go or what your motivation is.

Together we will create the World's Biggest Bike Ride on one day!

How to take part

Thousands of people of all abilities, experience and age took part in Cycling UK’s first World’s Biggest Bike Ride event on 12 September last year.

From roadies to mountain bikers, seasoned tourers to family groups, the fit to the not so fit, cyclists from across the country logged rides to celebrate the bike and the joy of riding.

Join us this year and help us create the World's Biggest Bike Ride to start Bike Week with a bang!

  • Pledge to ride
  • We'll send you tips, advice and inspiration ahead of the big day
  • Get out and ride on 30 May
  • Tell us you took part by logging your ride
Why not give it a go?

This year, we want to make the ride even bigger. As long as you get on your bike on Sunday 30 May - alone or with friends - if you log your journey with Cycling UK it will count as being part of the World’s Biggest Bike Ride.

Cycling UK is giving everyone a great reason to get out on their bikes, to celebrate the joys of cycling, and to get as many people as we can to ride on one day.  

Your ride counts

The more people that take part in the World’s Biggest Bike Ride, the more of an impact we will have, with a stronger voice to shout about how much of difference cycling can make. 

Cycling can – and will – make the world a better place; it improves our health, our wellbeing, our air quality, our ability to travel safely, which is why we are calling on anyone who likes riding bikes to go for a spin on 30 May.

World's Biggest Bike Ride supported by Evans Cycles

Evans Cycles, the UK specialist bike retailer, has begun celebrations for its centenary - marking 100 years on the British high street - and as part of their plans they are supporting the World’s Biggest Bike Ride.

In order to mark 100 years on the UK high street, the leading bike retailer is attempting to recreate cycling's modal share during its heyday of 1949: estimated at a whopping 37% (more than that in the Netherlands today).

Evans Cycles is calling all those in the London area taking part in the World’s Biggest Bike Ride to cycle over Blackfriars Bridge between 11am and 1pm. Using Google's Artificial Intelligence algorithm, a video camera will count passing riders and traffic. All those who ride through will also be treated to a free barista coffee and a birthday cupcake at its pop-up on the south side of the bridge.

Win prizes!

If you need an extra incentive to get out cycling as part of the World's Biggest Bike Ride, we have £1000's worth of prizes to be won.

Everyone who logs a ride on or just after 30 May will be entered into a draw to win some of the fantastic prizes on offer. You can also take advantage of some great offers from some of our partners, including headline partner Evans Cycles who are offering coffee and cake to all those participating in London!

From vouchers to childrens bikes, bike cleaning bundles and cycle lights, there is something for everyone. 

A big thanks to the support of the Bike Week and World's Biggest Bike Ride partners who have provided the incentives and gifts for those taking part.
