Love to Ride partnership

Latest news
Currently in its pilot year, we are holding a workshop at our annual conference: The Genius of Two Wheels. Book your place at the conference here.

Cycling is a fun and accessible way to get healthy, save money and have fun. It’s even good for the environment. A cohort of universities, with support from Love to Ride, EAUC and NUS have come together to get more people to ride a bike, if only for ten minutes.

This workshop session will review the learnings of the Uni-Cycle pilot which has used state-of-the-art behaviour change theory, GPS and app technology, and peer support to get more students and staff on their bikes and provides participants with top tips to take to their campuses as well as an opportunity to get involved for year two.

Following year one, the EAUC will be disseminating the results of the scheme via a series of webinars and blog posts.
Activity Background
EAUC invited all member UK and Ireland Universities and Colleges to take part in this new national behaviour change programme, designed to monitor and grow cycling amongst your staff and student communities. 

Uni-Cycle launched early 2017 and is part of a big push to grow cycling in the UK as part of Love to Ride’s ‘Year of the Bike’.

Participating institutions and their departments competed on Uni-Cycle leaderboards, with prizes and incentives for cycling and encouraging others to ride. The Love to Ride web platform is fully interactive, with motivational messaging, educational and informative updates, seasonal promotions and a fun, engaging and supported user-experience. Along with the GPS app, websites will be localised to be relevant, also helping to promote your other sustainable travel and health/wellbeing activity. 

The concept will build upon the momentum generated by year one and in year two extended the projects across further institutions.

This project is kindly funded by the Department of Transport.
