COLLEGE IS TOP CYCLING LOCATION!
City of Wolverhampton College has picked up an award for being one of the top cycling locations in the region.
The college has been named Bronze Top Cycle Location in recognition of its dedication in making it easier for staff or students to travel on two wheels.
The award is part of Centro’s government funded Smart Network, Smarter Choices scheme, which aims to reduce traffic congestion and improve health and wellbeing through use of active travel options such as cycling and walking.
As part of the project the college introduced pool bikes, which students could hire to help them travel to and from college.
Walk leader training was also organised for more than 70 Uniformed Public Services students, and a DR Bike mechanic was invited in to check staff and students bikes.
Student Projects Officer Lucy Bennett said: “We were really pleased to be involved in this initiative and we had a great response from staff and students.
“We are delighted to have won this award and look forward to introducing more ways of encouraging students to get on their bike.”
