What’s been happening for Bike Week?

Congratulations to Colchester Borough Council who took part in the National ‘Love to Ride’ Bike challenge and came 7th place out of 502 companies Nationwide!

120 people (13%) of staff took part in the three week challenge cycling a total of 5,737 miles. With free Dr Bike on site, free Bike breakfasts and gentle short rides for new and returning cyclists using CBC’s pool bikes, 53 people who had not ridden a bike for over 12 months were inspired to join in.

The challenge now is to keep those 53 returning cyclists motivated to carry on!

Michelle Lay-Flurrie, CBC’s Travel Plan rep said ‘coming 7th out of 502 companies nationwide is a huge accomplishment so a massive thank you to everyone who took part and particularly the 53 people who rose to the challenge of getting back on a bike. The feedback has been great and we really want to keep up the momentum we have created through the challenge.’
