Take on autumn cycling challenge in Chichester

Winchester jail put in special measures

Have your say

FOLLOWING on from the success of the Team GB cycling team at the summer Olympics and Paralympics a council is launching its first autumn cycle challenge.

Chichester District Council is encouraging organisations to get their staff cycling as much as possible over the next two weeks – whether it’s commuting to work, for fitness or for fun.

Among the prizes for those who cycle the most is a £500 bike from Hargroves Cycles and cycling vouchers, while new cyclists who take part can win a meal for two at Carluccio’s and Brasserie Blanc.

The challenge will run for two weeks from Saturday to October 14.

Organisations can hire bikes for staff during the challenge in a new link-up with local cycle shop, Summit Bikes of Selsey. For details call 01243 697547 or email steve@summitbikes.co.uk.

To take part cycle for just 10 minutes during the fortnight and register your ride online at chichestercyclechallenge.org.uk or go to chichester.gov.uk/cycling.
