The participants will be competing against each other during the Challenge, from Monday March 14th to Sunday April 3rd. The free competition aims to bring new bodies to cycling, where employess and studetns can ccle at a atime to suite them - even if it's just for ten minutes - and log their journey on the York Cycle Challenge website. 

Prizes are on offer for teams and individuals, and the competition will also pit York against Cambridge.

Graham Titchener, programme manager for Cycling City York, explained: “We’re delighted at the interest that we’ve had so far, but, with just two weeks to go, we want to remind any organisations that have not yet signed up that there’s still time to get involved. The challenge will be a really fun way for people to discover the benefits of cycling and, at the same time, stand a chance of winning great prizes for themselves and their team.

“It will be fun to see which teams come out on top in York, but we also want to ensure that York manages to get more people involved than Cambridge!”

The Challnege is organised with the CTC Challenge for Change.
