Interested in FREE cycle training, both on and off-road to improve your skills and confidence? Want to get out on your bike and improve your health and fitness? We have cycling activities that are aimed primarily at employees in businesses along the Comber Greenway, in East Belfast but we encourage all members of the public to sign up and take part.
Do you cycle in and around Belfast? Did you know you can get discounts and rewards in local shops if you arrive on two wheels?
The scheme called ‘Pedal Perks’ began in east Belfast to encourage people to cycle to local shops and cafes in the area. More and more businesses have now signed up - just look for the sticker in the window.
Nearly three times as many men cycle in Belfast as women according to our Bike Life survey. We are addressing this imbalance through a new 6-week course for women to encourage them to cycle for work or short journeys.
Funded through Interreg North-West Europe, Sustrans is working in Belfast on the behaviour change element of the programme to encourage commuters to swop the car for the bicycle. We are collaborating with leading cycling nations – the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany and the Republic of Ireland over the next three years.
If you are thinking of cycling to work but don't have a bicycle our bike loan scheme offers you the chance to borrow a bicycle for a week to try it out. Lewis tried it, loved it and said it helped to get him to work on time!
