On the 27th July 2015 our Chelmsford team handed over a new bicycle prize to Charlotte Powell an employee of Essex County Council! She was the winner of "Best Female" in the recent Workplace Cycle Challenge organised by Active Essex and the CTC that took place in workplaces all over Essex.
Charlotte Powell said "I really enjoyed being part of the workplace cycle challenge, I found out about the challenge from posters around my workplace at Essex County Council. I managed to accumulate all my points by cycling to work every day and training for an event coming up at the end of the summer where I will be cycling all the way to Barcelona. The online portal was a great way to track my training and I will use the new bike to commute to the station every day for work".
Ashleigh Judd our Chelmsford store manager said: "The Active Essex Workplace Challenge was a fantastic success and Cycles UK was delighted to support it".
We are so pleased that Charlotte will use her new bike as part of her commute to and from work. Don't forget a Cycle to Work scheme is a great way for employees registered to a scheme to receive bikes and cycling kit all as a tax-free benefit! You can sign up now at: https://c2w.cyclesuk.com
Soon you can find out how we are helping cyclists by supporting the CycleScheme National Cycle to Work event.
