Win Prizes for cycling this September!
Throughout September individuals and workplaces across West Yorkshire will be taking part in a fun, free cycling competition to encourage as many adults as possible to experience the joys and benefits of riding a bike. There are lots of prizes on offer for those who log rides and encourage others to take part including holidays, free bikes, cinema tickets and much more.
For workplaces, we’ve put together a carefully selected points system that rewards both regular cyclists as well as people who’d like to give cycling a try. Organisations that encourage both new and existing cyclists to take part will accumulate more points and increase their organisation’s participation in cycling. To ensure a fair and exciting competition, there are 6 business size categories: 500+, 200-499, 50-199, 20-49, 7-19 and 3-6 staff. In each size category, we’ll be awarding a regional trophy to the organisation who scores the most points and once the challenge starts you’ll be able to check your progress on our website’s leaderboard!
For individuals, it’s more of a personal challenge. You can use the software to set yourself fitness goals, win prizes by encouraging new riders to join up and get information about cycling events and activities taking place in our region. You could even set your sights on becoming the region’s top individual rider or encourager!
We’ll be making weekly prize draws, so whether you’re registered as an individual or part of a workplace team, anyone that logs at least one ten-minute ride in the lead up to each weekly draw will be entered into that week’s draw. Once the Challenge is complete at the end of September, there’ll be a final draw for the top prizes and anyone who’s logged at least one ten-minute ride during the Challenge will be eligible to win a regional or national prize. Full details of regional and national prizes (as well as full terms and conditions) are available on the website and will continue to be updated in the lead up the Challenge. The Top prize for West Yorkshire is currently a Jet2 break for 2 with £400 spending money! Not bad for riding a bike hey!
Finally, we’ve made it even easier to take part by allowing you to connect your favourite GPS activity tracking apps like Strava, Moves, Endomondo and MapMyRide and you can even use the Love to Ride App (Android or iOS) or log rides manually if you prefer things the tried and tested way! You’ll see how to do this on the website when you sign up.
