Win prizes for cycling this December with Winter Wheelers!

The University is taking part in UniCycle, which is a Love to Ride cycling initiative: an online campaign encouraging university students and staff to experience the joys of the bicycle.

‘Winter Wheelers’ is the latest in a series of events which the University is taking part in and we’re competing with five other universities nationally, and similar sized organisations in Brighton and Hove including the city council.

How you can take part

To track your cycling activity, go to the Love To Ride website.

Register and join the ‘University of Brighton (students)’ team or ‘University of Brighton (staff)’ team, and then log your rides on the online dashboard.

If you have a smart phone or tablet, you can also use an app to automatically log your rides.

Prizes on offer

Prizes are being given out to lucky winners each day from 1 to 25 December.

By taking part in the challenge you can be in with a chance to win a £500 bike voucher that you can use in your local shop and a Blaze bike light, designed by our graduate Emily Brooke.
