Event description

Description

Want to improve the experience of travelling by train with bicycles, for both cyclists and non-cyclists?

London Midland and CycleHack HQ invite you to a creative day to explore travelling by train with a bicycle. Working together, we want to make travelling with bikes more enjoyable for cyclists, non-cyclists and staff. The London Midland CycleHack Challenge will be a full day of ideas, action and experimentation.

CycleHack events are energetic, active sessions where people come up with ideas and start to build them. We are looking for both cyclists and non-cyclists to improve cycling by sharing their ideas and experiences.

The day includes:

  • Lunch and refreshments provided throughout the day.
  • A chance to meet and collaborate with new people who care about improving traveling with a bicycle.
  • Vouchers sent to you in advance for free travel on London Midland trains to and from the event.
