Cycle for Summer

Are you clocking your cycle miles in August? If you are, let LEAP know. We’re asking local people to take part in ‘Cycle for Summer’. All you have to do is log the miles or kilometres you cycle in August and record them with LEAP. The challenge is planned to get more people cycling, whether it’s for fun, leisure or a new way to travel to work. We’ve also got Electric Bikes available as a FREE hire to get you started on your cycling journey or you can use your own bike if you already have one.
