A TEAM of architects took to their bicycles to get to work as part of a commuter challenge run by Hampshire County Council.

Wickham-based architects, Axis Architecture, are taking part in the competition throughout May to promote healthier and greener ways of travelling.

Staff at Axis Architecture travel from Emsworth, Portchester, Stubbington and Hedge End.

The four-strong team of Chris Cook, Paul Anderson, Rob Winzar and John-Paul Rogers all agreed to exchange their cars for pushbikes and aim to complete 650 miles over the challenge period – that is the equivalent to cycling from Portsmouth to Aberdeen.

Director Chris Cook said: ‘We promote energy saving and sustainable building practices on a daily basis with our work.

‘Now it is our turn to save energy and look for greener solutions with our commuting.’
