Get on your bike this September

Get the new academic year off to a strong start by signing up to Love To Ride's Cycle September initiative - a fun, free competition between organisations to get more people on bikes.

Bikes 2Last year our University won the competition, clocking up 32,000 miles over the month! Read the full story.

Cycling can make you happier, healthier and save you money. It also makes our communities cleaner, greener and more liveable. It doesn't matter if you ride every day or you haven't been on a bike in years, everyone is invited and you only have to ride a bike for ten minutes to take part.

It's very easy to sign up, visit:

Prizes are available - by signing up you get entered into the draw. You can even sign up using your Facebook or Strava account! All you need to do is register and record your rides during September.

Workplaces in the region with the highest percentage of staff riding a bike in September will win their category - and individuals will be eligible for prizes for riding and encouraging others. There will be holidays, bikes, cycling bags and lots of other prizes up for grabs.
