Olympians and employees get behind Britain's first Cycle to Work Day


British Cycling employees joined Olympic champions in support of Britian’s first , arriving at the National Cycling Centre this morning.


Before tucking feet under a desk, riding the boards, or hurtling down the eight metre start hill of the BMX centre, professional athletes and office workers enjoyed a free morning snack in a unique environment, following a ride that for some is a job, others a new experience, but for most an escape, an essential part of the day.

After hosting the 2002 Commonwealth Games, the National Cycling Centre and British Cycling have changed beyond recognition. In 2011, the refurbishment of the Centre saw the addition of an indoor Olympic BMX track, mountain bike trails and expanded offices for the National Governing Body.
