On two wheels for bike month

Matamata Chronicle - - Sport -

The Bike Wise Chal­lenge is a fun and free com­pe­ti­tion held ev­ery Fe­bru­ary be­tween or­gan­i­sa­tions to see who can get the most staff to ride a bike for at least 10 min­utes or 2km.

More than 1500 or­gan­i­sa­tions and de­part­ments took part in the Bike Wise Chal­lenge 2011, log­ging an im­pres­sive 51,540 rides and over 800,000km.

The next Bike Wise Chal­lenge is be­ing run through­out this month. Here are great rea­sons for you to take part: It’s fun. You get to do some­thing dif­fer­ent with col­leagues or get away from the of­fice.

It saves money. Not just from petrol costs but from park­ing charges as well.

You can use the ex­tra money to buy the things you re­ally want.

It keeps you fit and healthy. No need for the gym mem­ber­ships. Your col­leagues will no­tice that ex­tra glow when you come to work.

You will ar­rive at work in­vig­o­rated from the fresh air and ex­er­cise.

You get to re­dis­cover your town and city in a whole new way.

You’re do­ing your bit to cut down on con­ges­tion and save the en­vi­ron­ment.

You’re more alert, pos­si­bly work faster as well.

You en­joy greater team­work with your col­leagues. New friend­ships might be formed. There are great prizes to be won. There is the thrill of beat­ing the com­pe­ti­tion.
