Residents are being offered a wheely great alternative to a chocolate advent calendar this December that could not only help you burn calories but also win daily prizes.
The #WinterWheelers advent calendar is part of a ‘Love to Ride’ campaign across south Essex which encourages residents to get on their bike throughout December to unlock cycling giveaways.
The promotion is available thanks to the South Essex Active Travel (SEAT) partnership between Essex County Council, Southend-on-Sea Borough Council and Thurrock Council.
Prizes include winter cycling gear from leading innovative brands Proviz, Blaze and Torch, plus vouchers to buy a new bike at the winners’ chosen local bike shops.
All you have to do is register at lovetoride.net/southessex (it only takes a minute) and record your rides or sync an app so they are logged automatically.
Daily rides help unlock your advent windows and win you prizes, while also logging the calories you burn along the way.
