On two wheels for bike month
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.
