Banana Boost for Swindon Active Cycle Challenge 2012 

Tell your workmates to get on their bike this month!
 
Cycling Swindon
There was a banana boost for Swindon commuters in the town centre this morning to mark the launch of the Swindon Active Cycle Challenge.
 
Throughout June, people at work are being encouraged to give two wheels a try as part of a  fun and free workplace-based challenge with prizes.
 
Swindon Travel Choices are behind the initiative, and were out in force this morning to encourage people in Swindon town centre to take part.
 
NOT about cycling to work
 
"Itís not just about cycling to work Ė itís about getting more people to experience for themselves how easy and enjoyable cycling can be," a co-ordinator said.

Throughout June
 
The idea is that you, your friends and family, and as many of your colleagues as possible hop on a bike some time over the month that the Challenge is running, logging your journeys as you make them.
 
Swindon Travel Choices
The length of time you ride can be as little as 5 minutes or as much as 10 hours. All journeys count towards the prize winning total. 
 
The organisations and departments that get the highest proportion of people cycling for their size category will win a Team Prize.
 
Those taking part include Aldi, Cable & Wireless, Nationwide, Intel and the National Trust.
