This fun and motivating cycling challenge runs until 30 April and is a fantastic way for new and experienced riders to enjoy the benefits of cycling. The project is run by the organisation 'Love to Ride'.
Open to anyone who lives or works in Midlothian – it doesn’t matter if you ride every day or haven’t been on a bike in years.
Participants need to be aged 13 or over with a Midlothian Postcode. If you work in the area make sure you register with your work address so you can be part of the Midlothian challenge.
The event provides great incentives for cyclists to achieve personal goals, challenge themselves or compete against friends. This can all be completed easily by logging rides on Midlothian’s bespoke Ride it Out website.
Over the three month different themes will be introduced to help people rediscover the joys of cycling as restrictions hopefully ease and the weather improves. Participants also have the chance to win exciting cycling related prizes.
It is hoped that participants who start riding in February will participate in the special ‘Ride it Out!’ event in March and continue cycling on throughout April.
