20 September - Beat the Street!


- is turning our Town into a giant, fun, free game for the community!

Beat the Street is coming to Colchester and turning our Town into a giant, fun, free game for the community from 20 September 2017!  

How far can you walk, cycle and run around your area, tapping beat boxes along the way? Can you be part of a winning team?

  • The game runs from 20 September to 8 November 2017

  • Collect and register your card as soon as you can (within two weeks of the start date maximum).  Cards and maps can be collected from various distribution centres and you will need to register online in preparation for the game launch.

  • There are dozens of beat boxes situated on lamp posts around Colchester and Tiptree and each time you tap between two beat boxes from 20 September, 10 points are gained! The more journeys you make, the more points you get!

  • There will also be “lucky taps” with an opportunity to win further prizes throughout the game!

  • You can play individual or you can join a team, either your child’s team or you can form your own team.

 Join in this great opportunity to combine active travel with having fun!

Find out about the e-bikes he has built, his campaigning for better cycle links particularly between towns and his lobbying for ebikes to be recognised as a mobility aid. 'Getting the bus is causing me big problems, but cycling is good. Going to work by bus I’m sitting down for an hour and a half and I’d have to take painkillers before going to work, but not when I’m cycling.'
