Brighten up, cyclists – winter events


October 23rd, 2014

Winter is coming, and the clocks go back on Sunday 26 October. This doesn’t mean you have to put away your bike!

The Wonderful Winter Cycling event is being held on Wednesday 29 October from 11am-2pm in the Engineering and Science Learning Centre atrium. There will be advice and demonstration sessions showing you how to set your bike up for winter cycling, basic maintenance, cycling hints, appropriate clothing, giveaways, free reflectors to keep you safe and free tea and crumpets. So come along to have a cuppa, and get kitted out for winter!

On Friday 31 October at 5pm the monthly bike convoy will be back again to ride around the campus, through Wollaton Park and into the city centre. We want as many people as possible to join us and turn the convoy into a rolling light parade! Last month we had a massive 40 people on the ride and even got a mention in the Nottingham Post. We want this one to be bigger, better and brighter than before though so spread the word, bring a friend and join in!

So join us for a short sociable ride of around five miles (one hour) and jump on or off whenever you like. All abilities are welcome and we can even get you a bike if you don’t have one, just email adam.batty@sustrans.org.uk to reserve.

For more information about both events, visit the Sustainability website.
