Your chance to win prizes for cycling with Winter Wheelers

Celebrate and enjoy cycling this winter with an advent calendar for grown-ups!

Experience the joys and benefits of riding a bike during December, and you can take part in a giveaway of winter cycling gear from leading brands.

Love to Ride Brighton and Hove will be giving away prizes every day from 1-25 December. Log your bike rides for the chance to win wet-weather gear from Proviz, light sets from beryl, maintenance kits from Muc-off and T2 helmets from Torch - plus two vouchers (£750 and £500) to spend at a local bike shop.

It doesn't matter whether you ride to campus, to the shop or just around the block, so long as you log your rides or connect an app.

It’s free to take part in the Winter Wheelers challenge, organised by Brighton & Hove City Council with Love to Ride and Sustrans; to find out more and to register, visit

So many Sussex staff took part in the most recent previous cycle challenge, in September 2018, that the University finished the month as Brighton & Hove champions.

And in case you needed any more reasons to get on a bike, don’t forget that Sussex staff benefit from a number of facilities and initiatives for cyclists.

The University’s Cycle to Work scheme means Sussex staff can obtain a bike and/or cycling accessories to use for riding to work while making tax and National Insurance savings from their gross pay.

Sussex is also part of the Brighton bike-share scheme; just pick up a BTN Bike Share bicycle from one of the docking stations outside the Sport Centre and York House.

More information about cycling to campus – including advice about keeping your bike secure and tips on cycle maintenance - is available on the transport web pages.
