Article from Kent Sport

The end of May brings National Bike Week (30 May – 5 June 2021) and the celebration of all things biking. The awareness week is delivered by Cycling UK. There are loads of ways to get out and get active on campus, here’s a few:

Pilgrims Hospices Cycle Challenge Sunday 22 August 2021

If you love to challenge yourself while raising money for a fantastic charity, then this will be right up your street! Take in the sights of the beautiful Kent countryside as you tackle one of 5 cycling routes; from a gentle 30 mile route, through to The Epic, a 125 mile route that will really test your strength and endurance. Riders will sign-in and set-off from The Pavilion on the Canterbury campus. Sign up on the Pilgrims Hospice website.

Cycling on campus

The Canterbury campus and surrounding areas are steeped in beautiful buildings and scenery. Our Sports Development team have been out on their bikes mapping routes across campus for cycling and walking. Check out the routes on the Kent Sport webpage.

Bonus: track your cycle on our Travel to Tokyo challenge and help us to (virtually) get to the Tokyo Olympic stadium before the 2022 Olympic Games!

Staycation family activity breaks 19 to 27 August

Wondering how you keep everyone entertained during the long summer holidays? We’ve recently released details of our family activity breaks, which includes Kent Sport gym access, spinning classes and much more. More information and booking can be found on the Conference and Events webpage.

Indoor cycling

If indoor cycling is more your thing, Kent Sport offers a range of options for all activity and ability levels. Join our qualified spin instructors in our studio for 45-minutes of spinning fun, or if you prefer to go solo, jump on one of many exercise bikes in our gym. Why not try our Watt Bikes for that extra difficulty and cycling analysis.

Cycling as a form of rehabilitation

The Kent Sport Physiotherapy Clinic provides some information on how cycling can help with injury rehabilitation. If you have any questions, speak to our experienced clinic staff by emailing physio@kent.ac.uk. Read our article on Cycling as a form of rehabilitation.
