Celebrate #RainbowLaces Day with a free set of laces from Cycling UK

Today is #RainbowLaces Day, and Stonewall are offering Cycling UK supporters a free pair of rainbow laces for their cycling shoes. We are proud to support this campaign which seeks to improve inclusion in sport among the LGBT community

Why are we supporting the Rainbow Laces campaign?

Stonewall's statistics show there is a need for more action to be taken, so that people who identify as LGBT feel more welcomed in sport:

  • 43% of LGBT people think public sporting events aren’t a welcoming space for LGBT people.
  • 11% of LGBT people have been discriminated against while exercising at a fitness club or while taking part in group sport in the last year.
  • 28% of trans people have been discriminated against.

Stonewall is therefore calling on the organisers of team sports and activities such as cycling, to create safer and more inclusive spaces so that people who may have different sexualities and gender identities to those around them feel able to participate, particularly during the pandemic when recreation in the outdoors is particularly beneficial to everyone's physical and mental health. The charity has shared some top tips for LGBT inclusion in sport and how to be a better ally to LGBT people. 

Several big companies, brands and teams such as Arsenal have also shown their support for the campaign by changing their logos to incorporate the rainbow stripes. 


Claim your free Rainbow Laces

One of the ways is to express support for the community is by wearing rainbow laces, the colours of the LGBT movement. Normally priced at £2.99, we have a limited supply of pairs of rainbow laces to give away for free on a first come, first served basis. Why not get some as a gift for family or friends?

Alternatively, you could also order your own from Stonewall - they now come in a range of different colourways to show support for people from a range of different identities, such as Lesbian, Bi, Non-Binary, Trans and Asexual.
