Bag cycling gear to help see you through the winter

Cycling can make you happier, healthier and wealthier. It also makes our communities cleaner and more liveable, and keeps the air fresher.

With the right gear and guidance, riding in winter can be just as rewarding as summertime cycling, so we’re inviting all University of Sussex staff to sign up for Winter Wheelers 2019, from 1-25 December.

It’s a cycling advent calendar for grown-ups, with daily giveaways of winter cycling gear from leading brands, to reward you for riding when you otherwise might not!.

Every day you ride from 1-25 December, you will enter the draw for winter cycling goodies such as:

  • All-weather gloves by Loffi that promote positive communication between road users
  • Hi-viz cycling clothing from Proviz
  • Beryl lights that let drivers know you’re cycling on the road by projecting a bike on the road surface
  • Draws in mid December (£500) and on Christmas Day (£750) for vouchers to spend at a  local bike shop

And log a ride to work on any Wednesday in December for the chance to win a £750 bike from Ribble, Trek, Cube or Specialised.

It takes only 30 seconds to register for Winter Wheelers; sign up at by Wednesday 27 November to go into the draw for a £100 local bike shop voucher.

Then enjoy a ride in December and record it on your profile to see what Love to Ride is all about.
