Walk/Run/Ride Sheffield - June
June is the month for cyclists, runners, walkers and scooterists of the Outdoor City, with prizes, games and explorations on offer for anyone getting around under their own steam.
Love to Ride and other cycling organisations are celebrating Bike Month, while Move More Month sees the Beat the Street game launch on June 16th. Meanwhile the summer sees Sheffield and Rotherham Wildlife Trust launch 30 Days Wild inviting us all to explore the natural world every day of June.
Our advice: sign up for all three, make your trips on foot or by bike, and everybody wins, including you (one way or another)!
Meanwhile Sheffield Council is asking employers and key workers to think about whether loaning an e-bike (or e-cargo bike) might help reduce congestion and pollution and save them money all at the same time. Find out more at:
