The University of Nottingham is launching its annual ‘Brighten Up’ campaign to encourage staff and students to be safe and be seen when cycling in the autumn and winter months.
From Monday 23 October – Friday 27 October 2017 we’ll be holding a series of events across our UK campuses. The events will feature RideWise instructors who will be able to give advice on lighting, hi visibility clothing and cycling in the damp and dark.
Staff and students attending the events will also be able to collect hi visibility equipment and free lights provided by the University and Nottinghamshire Police.
Here are the details of the events. There’s no need to book – just turn up on the day!
Speaking about the Brighten Up campaign, Gavin Scott, Environment Manager at the University, says:
“We see more and more students and staff cycling around our campuses and around Nottingham. It’s vital that cyclists remain safe, especially when the clocks change and the nights get darker. We are pleased to continue to run this annual event and hope that it will help to keep people safer and feeling confident on their bikes.”

RideWise also provide cycle training across Nottingham through their cycle centres, group training and one to one support. For more information, visit the RideWise website.
