This January, Nottingham City Council is encouraging people to keep on cycling through winter by offering a series of free lunchtime cycling webinars and taking part in Love to Ride’s #RideResolutions month.
For essential journeys and exercise during lockdown, riding a bike is one of the most convenient and environmentally-friendly forms of transport around, it’s great for social distancing, and can have huge benefits on physical and mental health…
The council has teamed up with Love to Ride to get as many people as possible out on their bikes, setting #RideResolutions to keep up the motivation and cycle further than ever before.
To help people achieve their cycling goals, the council is running a series of free lunchtime webinars. After a successful first round in November, RideWise, Sustrans and British Cycling are offering their top tips to keep you riding safely through January and beyond.
Councillor Adele Williams, Portfolio Holder for Transport said: “With the return of lockdown and increased emphasis on active travel, the winter weather and dark nights shouldn’t stop you from wrapping up warm and cycling from A to B.
“Over the weekends from March to September last year our cycle numbers more than doubled from what they were pre-pandemic, and we want to see this continue to grow into the New Year.
“We want to make cycling around Nottingham as easy and accessible as possible, and are here to support anyone on their journey, from beginners just starting out to our seasoned cyclists who know Nottingham’s cycle paths like the back of their helmet.”
