2018 Smarter Travel Cycle Challenge

Posted on 13/06/13 at 12:30

Smarter Travel’s Annual Challenge takes place this year from 9th – 29th May 2018. The Challenge is open to staff and students of all Smarter Travel Workplace and Campus partners.

A team event for 3 – 6 people, the aim is to get on your bike and get moving; to work, college, the shops, the school run, whenever you need to get around.

25% of people who took part in last year’s Cycling Challenge classified themselves as ‘new/ returning cyclists’.

And almost half of all participants lived over 10kms from work.

Some comments from last year’s participants on their experiences of the Challenge:

  • “Great to be back on the bike”
  • “I found cycling quite exhilarating”
  • “Saved money”
  • “Enjoyed a different route every day”
  • “I even bought myself a new bike”
  • “I have continued to cycle every day!! – I love it!!”

Participating workplaces and campuses will be listed here when and as they register, or keep an eye out for posters advertising the Challenge where you are. You’ll then be able to go over to, register (if you haven’t already) and join the Cycle Challenge with your workplace.
