Not only is riding a bike a low cost way to get around, it’s also great for your health, and for the environment.
Nottingham City Council is committed to making it easier to get around the city by bike and encourage more people to get in the saddle. That’s never been more important than the last few months, when the need for social distancing has made walking and cycling even more attractive options.
We’ve received funding to spend on schemes that make active travel easier, but it’s not just about having the facilities in place – knowledge, skills and confidence are important too.
As part of Cycle September, and working with our partners Love to Ride, Sustrans and Ridewise, we’re sharing a couple of videos offering cycling advice and challenges.
We’re also working on further webinars around different cycling topics including Nottingham’s cycle strategy, autumn and winter cycling tips, and cycle route planning, so look out next month for an update!
For more information and advice on getting into cycling, check out these links to organisations in the city.
