On Friday, August 5, Barrow AFC club and staff members will be totalling 200 miles in-house for the annual 'Cycle To Work Day' in aid of St. Mary's Hospice.

The event is part of the English Football League's community calendar; a scheduled dedicated to supporting good causes.

Cycle to Work Day has been created in order to encourage people to do just that: cycle to work.

It encourages people to give their bike a go and cycle to work, at least for one day of the year.

There are so many different benefits that are associated with cycling to work. Not only is this good for your health but you are going to be doing your bit for the environment as well.

There have even been government and state initiatives created around the world to encourage people to cycle to work more often.
