May Cycle Challenge

Get on your bike for the May Cycle Challenge!

For the month of May, we’re aiming to cycle the distance around the world and need your help!

Whether you’re a cycling enthusiast, or a new cyclist, we want to encourage people to get out on their bikes and help us reach our 42,000 km target by taking part in our challenge.

From commuting to enjoying a family ride in the park, all we need you to do is get on your bike and log your miles via the mapping app, Naviki.

Not only does the challenge provide the perfect backdrop to getting out on your bike, but the routes and data collected from the challenge will help us develop Glasgow’s cycle network to be the best it can be.

Who can take part?

People from across the Clyde Valley can take part and all miles count, but we’re looking for data within certain areas to help develop our cycle routes. Please check our POSTCODE MAP to see these areas within the green boundary.

To help you get started, we’ve a whole month of led rides to suit all rider levels from beginner to experienced, so you won’t lack motivation for getting out on your bike.

And if that’s not enough to get you going, there’s lots of great prizes to be won and discounts available from our Sponsors! Download your guide with details of led rides, prizes and discounts here: Z-CARD
