Pumped UpCycling UK have launched a new campaign- Pumped Up- to celebrate the joy of the bike across our towns, cities and countryside and reminding people about the fun and freedom that cycling unlocks.

Cycling has never been so popular since the post-war years. Recent figures show a 146% increase in cycle journeys in the UK. The recent global pandemic has given us a glimpse into what the future could hold as people stayed home, breathed cleaner air, found solace in quietness and nature and most importantly rode their bikes.

Dusty cycles were resurrected from garden sheds and garages. Tyres were pumped, saddles adjusted, and chains oiled.
Some rode for exercise, others for escapism and their mental health; some to pick up milk and others to feel alive. To capture that new-found enthusiasm for cycling, Cycling UK launching an exciting new campaign, Pumped Up.

Pumped Up is inspiring everyone to enjoy that special thrill and freedom of riding a bike, whether they're already a dedicated cyclist who can inspire their friends and family to ride or just starting out and need some advice and inspiration, we want everyone to be Pumped Up to cycle with us.
