Challenge for Change have joined forces with the CTC, the UK’s national cyclists organisation, Leicester City Council, Leicestershire County Council and NHS Leicester City to run the Leicester Shire Cycle Challenge. The Challenge is a proven programme to get more people cycling more often and we look forward to seeing more people on bikes in and around Leicester Shire.
