Rutland riders can get back in the saddle, trade in or donate their bikes with Active Rutland.

Active Rutland are fronting a new initiative to 'Get Rutland Cycling', and this Easter hosted a bike donation, welcoming pre-loved bikes to support the fitness, road safety and cycling education of the local community.

Active Rutland are a physical activity development team from Rutland County Council, who bring together physical activity partners, promote and develop local opportunities and help people of all ages on their journey of physical activity.

As well as hosting days to donate bikes, they give local people the chance to trade up family bikes or pick up a new bike if you don't have one.

The next Trade Up & Ride Away day will take place on 3 April 2024. If you can't make this, the next session will take place on 28 May from 9:30am - 12:30pm at the Active Rutland Hub, Oakham Enterprise Park, Ashwell Road, Oakham, Rutland, LE15 7TU.

Rutland County Council cycle instructors will be present throughout the session on Wednesday 3 April to help give tips and advice on cycling.

Alternatively, the next drop off Donation Day will take place between 9.30 - 11.30am on Saturday 25 May.

This will take place at Uppingham C of E Primary School, Belgrave Road, Uppingham, Rutland, LE15 9RT.

Active Rutland also hosts 1-2-1 Learn to Ride and Back in the Saddle sessions for children and adults, between £12 and £20.

For cyclists who are already comfortable on a bike, but want to learn more about the road and gain a valuable qualification, they also host Bikeability qualifications up to level 3.
