We are joining forces with the national governing body for cycling, British Cycling, to encourage the British public to take up cycling as part of a healthy, active lifestyle.
We organise around 25 cycling events, which are open to a variety of abilities, including our iconic London to Brighton Bike Ride which is taking place this weekend. Our events raise vital funds our life-saving research, whilst offering participants a great way to improve their own heart health.
British Cycling supports people of all ages and abilities to get on a bike, including offering a wide selection of rides, from competitive racing to personal challenge rides to leisurely rides, covering off all cycling disciplines.
The partnership will offer you a whole host of materials to improve your cycling skills and build your confidence. By becoming a British Cycling member, via our website, you will receive a membership package and have access to training materials, discount offers for Halfords, priority access to UK cycle events and much more.
The partnership will also look to raise funds to drive forward the fight against heart disease – every time a cyclist signs up to become a British Cycling member via our website, a £4 donation will be made.
British Cycling’s Recreation and Partnerships Director, Stewart Kellett said: “We are delighted to be working in partnership with the BHF to get more people pedalling, not only to improve their health but also to power research to raise vital funds to tackle the UK’s single biggest killer, coronary heart disease. Together with the BHF, we are hoping to inspire people the length and breadth of the country to saddle up to help improve their fitness and overall heart health as well as helping a truly worthy cause.
“By becoming a British Cycling Member, cyclists will have access to training material to get them in tip-top shape for their upcoming ride. We also have a number of training rides available to BHF supporters to get them ready for any cycling challenge.”
