Summer is the perfect time to hop on our bikes and explore the beautiful green and blue spaces of Kent’s countryside and coast. Cycling is not only a great way to enjoy the outdoors, but it also promotes a healthy lifestyle. We want to encourage residents and families to cycle more and show how important it is for our health and well-being. We also want this campaign to inspire children and young people to develop a passion for cycling. As the new school year approaches after the summer holidays, let’s consider active travel as an alternative to car commutes. Join us in finding ways to reduce our carbon footprint and help make a positive impact on our environment. Check out our resources and challenges to take part in over the warmer months.
