To celebrate Bike Week from 14th – 21st June, Brighton & Hove City Council is encouraging employees from businesses across the city, to give cycling a try for their daily commute.
After the 21st June, cyclists can complete a questionnaire online at http://www.brighton-hove.gov.uk/index.cfm?request=c1206254 and provide their cycle mileage for the week. From the mileage provided, the council will convert the number of miles cycled to how much carbon has been saved compared to if the miles had been driven by car.
All participants will then be entered into a prize draw to win cycle accessories like puncture repair kits, pumps, high visibility belts and rucksack covers, bike lights and locks.
So jump on your bike, encourage your workmates to do the same, and see how many miles your organisation can accumulate during Bike Week, and how much carbon it can save.
The Workplace Cycle Challenge is just one of a number of initiatives the council is running to celebrate Bike Week across the city.
Details of the programme for the week can be found by visiting www.journeyon.co.uk. 2009 has been designated as the Year of Walking and Cycling across Brighton & Hove and the city has been selected as a national exemplar Cycling Town from 2009 to 2011.
This builds on the success of our Cycling Demonstration Town status from 2005 to 2008. The council is dedicated to promoting healthy and environmentally friendly travel and particularly cycling.
