Update for week of 25 April 2016

Join the European Cycling Challenge 2016

As part of DIT’s commitment to becoming a sustainable campus, we will be participating in the European Cycling Challenge for the month of May. ECC2016 is an urban cyclists’ team competition. It takes place from 1 to 31 May 2016.

The European Cycle Challenge was launched in 2012 by the University of Bologna. This year, for only the second time, Dublin is participating in the Challenge. This is your chance to help Dublin compete with other cities in Europe to be the city that cycles the most kilometres during the month of May.

As DIT is a partner in the Smarter Travel Workplaces programme, in addition to joining Team Dublin, you can join your workplace sub-team – TEAM DIT – There is a staff and student team.  During the month we will have spot prizes for participants.

All journeys made by bicycle instead of other means of transportation (such as car, motorcycle or any engine powered vehicles) are accepted. For instance: journeys to and from workplace, school, to shopping, to go to the cinema, etc… are valid journeys

To register, simply go to www.cyclingchallenge.eu . You can also download the free app - Cycling365 - to your smartphone.  Cycling365 will track your bike journeys during the Challenge. If you have already registered – thank you, and make sure you join the DIT sub-team.

Let’s go Team DIT!
