British Cycling, Herts County Council and Herts Disability Sports Foundation partner with Active Students to offer you an afternoon of cycling! Learn to ride for the first time, take a guided ride with our leaders around the local cycling routes, get your bicycle serviced by our mechanic, and mark it against theft with our University Campus Policing team. 

Once the evening hits we will be changing wheel type to try a bit of wheelchair basketball. Whether you have a disability or not, come down and show us your skills! Finally, it's everyones favourite - Rollerskating! Rollerskaters of all abilities will take over the Oval MUGA and you're invited - whether a complete beginner or experienced pro!
