Get Active for Bike Week 2022!

At Sustainable Kirrie we think it’s incredibly important to try and travel actively for short to medium journeys; it’s good for the environment, it’s great for our health and wellbeing, and it’s cheaper too. It takes less than 20 minutes to walk a mile (e.g. from the golf club to the bottom of the Roods) and cycling a mile takes about 5 minutes.

For Bike Week 2022 (6th-12th June), Sustainable Kirrie is challenging people in the town and surrounding area to travel more actively. Walk, wheel, scoot or cycle and let us know about it, to be in with a chance of winning a prize.

Prizes have been funded by Paths for All’s ‘Smarter Choices Smarter Places’ programme.

To be in with a chance of winning one of the prizes complete and submit this form each time you travel actively between 6th and 12th of June 2022.
