About us

We believe that communities are stronger when working together.  

In her maiden speech in parliament Jo Cox MP spoke about having 'far more in common than that which divides us' and The Jo Cox Way bike ride is a wonderful example of the 'More in Common' ethos. 

The ride brings together people from all backgrounds through a shared love of cycling and the goal of completing the challenging 5 day ride creates a strong sense of togetherness. It is something Jo herself would have loved and it is a fitting and important part of her powerful legacy.

The Jo Cox Way bike ride starts in Jo's parliamentary constituency of Batley & Spen on 27th July 2022 and arrives in Lambeth in London 5 days later on the 31st of July. 

We are connecting communities using the power of two-wheels and celebrating the #MoreInCommon values of Rt. Hon. Jo Cox MP. The route represents the journey that Jo Cox took on behalf of her constituents to represent them in Parliament. We are keeping alive Jo's legacy and celebrating the countless selfless activities that people undertake in their communities.

There will be over 70 riders undertaking the full route to London. In addition we encourage riders to join in as we pass through their region, cycle with us for a few miles... or the whole day. Route information and the start and end location for each day is available at:

Fund raising to support the Jo Cox Foundation is encouraged via

The Jo Cox Foundation was established in 2016 by the friends and family of the late Jo Cox MP. The Foundation exists to build a positive legacy for Jo and to create something positive from the tragedy that was her murder. The vision is for a kinder, more compassionate society where every individual has a sense of belonging and where we recognise that we have more in common than that which divides us. 

The Jo Cox Foundation inspires and galvanises positive change at local, national and international levels. It does this by partnering with visionary individuals and organisations who share our commitment to the fairer, kinder world that Jo dedicated her life to building.

Jo dedicated her life to building Stronger Communities, A Better Public Life and A Fairer World

The ride forms part of the series of More In Common events organised by The Jo Cox Foundation.
