Record year for bike to work


The current edition of the Swiss bike to work challenge beats all previous bike campaigns with a 30% increase on last year’s achievements: more participants, more teams, more companies and more kilometres. In May and June as many as 80,556 participants from 2,829 companies covered 22,184,698 kilometres biking to and from work. According to the bike to work press release, e-bikes are clearly on the rise: In 2022, 28% of the participants joined in with an e-bike, compared to 19% in 2019. The e-bike is becoming increasingly attractive for commuters, and replaces inefficient and polluting car journeys.
