Hertfordshire County Council

Whilst Charity Bike Build is one of the most popular activities we do we also work on other events and have a specialism in bike related challenges that encourage people to take up cycling or cycle more.

We have teamed up with Hertfordshire County Council and The Herts Year of the Bike. In May we were at the Women’s Tour of Britain encouraging families to have a go on our cycling simulator. The simulator enables us to enter a riders home address and a regularly visited destination that usually requires them to use their car. This could be the school run, a trip to get some milk or to a country pub. The riders were then challenged to ride the distance on the simulator.

The result was in most cases people were surprised how easy they found the journey and even more surpised at how little time it took.

Look out for our simulator thoughout the rest of this year and come and have a go.
