On Ya Bike!

Get On Ya Bike! and explore what Peterborough cycle routes and green spaces have to offer.

Health & Wellbeing





It’s time to get on ya bike! 63% of people across the first six weeks of lockdown said that exercise was important for their mental health (Sport England). The most common exercises over lockdown saw us walking, or getting our bikes out and cycling, around our local green spaces. Peterborough is incredibly lucky to have a number of green cycle routes and connected paths, including the Green Wheel, and we want to celebrate this in our new project, On Ya Bike.

We are working with LNER and Nene Park Trust to continue the positive active behaviour changes beyond the pandemic and into our day to day lives. We know that not everyone is a confident cyclist or might not have been on a bike for a number of years. Therefore, the partnership has formed to encourage as many new and old cyclists to feel safe and comfortable when out cycling around Peterborough.

what’s on!

Cycling is an excellent way to keep fit, lose weight and explore the outdoors. By cycling instead of travelling by car, we can also reduce our carbon footprint, help reduce air pollution and contribute to making Peterborough a cleaner, healthier place to live.

Drop-in cycle skills sessions at Nene Outdoors, Ferry Meadows Country Park running from mid-August to September.
