Big Herts Cycle Challenge

Anyone working in Hertfordshire is invited to Join the Fun between 30 June and 20 July.
Big Herts Cycle Challenge is a cycling promotion where workplaces  compete to see who can get the most people riding a bike.  Recruit workmates to ride a bike to climb up the leaderboard and win the Challenge.  People only need to cycle for 10 minutes, but more is OK! There are incentives and prizes.  Any business in Hertfordshire can register and see the results of the rides they log but only businesses registered in St Albans, Watford, Hemel Hempstead, Kings Langley, Abbotts Langley, Apsley, Bricket Wood and London Colney are eligible for prizes.
Unfortunately you have missed the St Albans city centre promotional event with smoothie bikes, BMX stunt displays and Brompton try-outs and more.  It happened today.  Fortunately, some STACC folk did find their way there, so the organisers now have a contact for the cycle campaign.

One of the 'more' things was Clearspace Buildings.  They make modular buildings, mainly for schools, but they have developed a modular cycle park and shower unit, with support from Rob Hayles, a famously innovative Olympic and World Champion cyclist.  The video on the website shows the unit installed at Watford General Hospital.  The units are proving popular - clients are wanting quality showers and cycle parking in their company buildings as it is something that helps in recruitment of staff.

And the mayor was there, and he rode a bike.

Sorry, did not take any photos. Too busy making smoothies, and admiring the workers going around the little circuit on the Bromptons. Lots of happy faces.
