The UniCycle Challenge is here

5th March 2018

UniCycle is a collaboration between NUS Sustainability, Love to Ride and the EAUC to get more students and staff on bikes.

Funded by the Department for Transport, the pilot year has seen eight universities delivering behaviour change interventions to help achieve the government's target of doubling cycling by 2025. Estates, transport and sustainability officers have been working with students' unions to engage staff and students, running led bike rides, maintenance courses, bike breakfasts, a virtual reality veledrome challenge and second-hand bike sales.

Using the Individual Social Material (ISM) behaviour change model, universities have designed interventions tailored to their specific needs.

The main event is the UniCycle Challenge - a competition between the universities with points awarded for riding and encouraging - which runs from 1-21 March.

The UniCycle programme runs right through until the end of term and details of how to join for the 2018/9 academic year will be published soon. Visit the site here
