    Cycling

    Sky has been inspiring the nation to get on their bikes for the past eight years and 2016 has been our biggest year yet. Not only has Team Sky won its fourth Tour de France but we also reached the milestone of more than one million participants having taken part in Sky Ride. We’ve created a great environment for our employees to enjoy cycling, which has resulted in 40% of our people cycling regularly.
