News : ‘Plus One’ Commuter Challenge 2009
Perhaps you're more of an occasional cyclist who wants to be in with a chance of winning a brand new bike?
The Cycling Demonstration Town (CDT) Team is inviting commuters and their colleagues to pair up during this year's Bike Week (13 – 21 June) and take part in its 'Plus One’ Commuter Challenge.
Registering for the challenge couldn't be easier. Simply visit www.celebratingcycling.org/challenge to register you and your challenge partner's details and you will both be entered into the prize draw.
In addition to the main prize there's also the opportunity to win a corporate bike to work day for your organisation, a sports or relaxation massage, cinema tickets and every cyclist’s must have...cake!
Cycling to work is not only often quicker than travelling by car or bus but it's cheaper and certainly healthier too. With a forecast for a great summer this is definitely the year to make that switch and get cycling to work.
The CDT project team can help with advice on routes, cycle training and even provide you with a bike buddy who will ride with you on your first day of cycling to work. Don't forget to ask one of your colleagues who already cycles to work for advice as they will already have solved many of the issues you think you might encounter.
If you want to take part but don't have access to the internet call Matt Moran, Workplace Cycling Officer, on 01524 582616 for an entry form.
