Ready, steady, cycle!

Bike to Work, the Switzerland-wide cycling campaign, is back for its 2024 edition

Join this year’s Bike to Work campaign, which encourages workers in companies all over Switzerland to commute by bicycle as often as possible throughout the months of May and June.

Taking part is easy: first form a team of four, give your team a name and register it on the Bike to Work website. No team? No problem: you can also request to join an incomplete team.

There are no registration fees or minimum distance requirements, and part of your journey can be undertaken by public transport. Non-cyclists are not left out: one team member is allowed to commute on foot, by skateboard or by any other means of non-motorised transport. 

This year, CERN’s participation in the Bike to Work challenge takes on a new dimension. We will be participating alongside the Canton of Geneva and more than 40 other local entities, including municipalities, autonomous public establishments and other international organisations in Geneva.

This means several tens of thousands of us will be coming to work by bike, which will send a strong and positive message in favour of active mobility, physical activity and good health in Geneva. The “big winners” will be rewarded with a special prize offered by the Canton of Geneva.

You can find more detailed information about the general event and our very own “Bike to CERN” initiative, which runs all year round, on the Bike to Work and Bike to CERN webpages. 

Safety first: don’t forget to check out the Safety rules for cycling and the Road safety pages and to complete the online course Road Traffic – Bike Riding before getting in the saddle.

May the sun shine and the roads be safe for you all!
