Wheels for Life Launch & Bike Ride
Join us for a casual bike ride around Louth to celebrate the Wheels for Life campaign launched by Active Lincolnshire.
Friday 8 September at Meridian Leisure Centre, Louth, 10.15 (for 10.30 start).
Wheels for Life is a new scheme for bike donation which will take pre-loved bikes and bring them back to a usable condition for them to be gifted to people who do not have the opportunity to enjoy the varied benefits of owning and using a bike. The first hub has now launched in Louth and will be the first of many across the county that will be open to take donations and refurbish bikes. Find out more about the Wheels for Life scheme here.
To celebrate the launch, the Wheels For Life team along with Low Carbon Louth will be leading a bike ride around Louth that will welcome everyone, no matter what your cycling ability is, just come along and enjoy the ride! The circular route will be a maximum of 5 miles and is predominantly flat. We’ll stop on the way round at Low Carbon Louth to see the hub and get refreshments in the Youth Centre before continuing on.
Bring your own bike or if you haven’t got a bike, or can’t get it there, let us know and we will bring along some refurbished bikes that have been donated through the scheme for you to ride. Please wear suitable outdoor clothing for the weather, and if you can, please wear a helmet.
Come and have a chat with some of the people involved in the scheme from Active Lincolnshire, Low Carbon Louth and other supporting partners. We’ll be more than happy to chat about the campaign and how it will benefit Louth and the people across other areas of Lincolnshire.
Arrive from 10.15am for the ride to start at 10.30am.
