Cycle September is a workplace cycle challenge run by Love to Ride, an online community that aims to get more people on bikes. The annual challenge sees individuals and their workplaces complete on local, national and global leaderboards to see who can earn the most points, based on every mile and day ridden, and every person encouraged to ride.
ABPmer has been taking part in Cycle September since 2018. This year our staff cycled 1,784 miles, earning 3,828 points and placing 1st national and 2nd internationally for our size of consultancy business, and 1st locally for our company size across all industries.
Chris Jackson, ABPmer’s Head of Data and GIS Solutions, earned the local award for Top Encourager, inspiring the most people to take part in this year’s challenge.

ABPmer is a great believer in keeping active. We support staff in finding and doing physical activities they enjoy by providing flexible working hours, discounts on leading retailers, a secure bike store and on-site shower facilities. Pre-COVID, many of our staff regularly rode to work, some clocking up over 20 miles each way.
In addition to the annual Cycle September challenge, ABPmer staff organise regular group bike rides. Last year several staff took part in a charity ride, cycling 170 miles from Southampton to Hereford, raising over £3,500 for The Royal National College for the Blind.
