UniCycle scheme aims to get people on their bikes

The University of Oxford has teamed up with the National Union of Students’ Love to Ride scheme to run UniCycle. The programme starts with the Cycle September initiative but will run throughout the 2018/19 academic year.

The site lets members set goals, track their mileage, earn badges, share photos and encourage others to ride.

The main UniCycle event starts in spring. The University will compete against colleges and universities across the UK to see which can get the most students and staff riding. This is the second year the University has taken part; it came first last year and now aims to hold onto the top spot.
