What is stopping women cycling? ◾Don't boast of your long rides ◾Don't cultivate a "bicycle face" ◾Don't refuse assistance up a hill Just some of the advice given to female cyclists just over 100 years ago. We'll be chatting to Gary Philipson about getting more women out of cars and onto bikes on BBC Tees between 4 and 6pm this evening. An interesting read from the BBC's website: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-leicestershire-41737483 View Post
Success for staff at Student Loans Company
Local Motion approached the Student Loans Company to get them involved in a step challenge and the response was fantastic. Michael and Stephen and another team mate threw themselves into the challenge and ended up runners up! Here's their story about why they did it and what they got out of it...
Was the challenge worthwhile?
Yes, obviously the £50 is nice combined with the fact that it raised all our awareness of how much we walked daily.
Has it made any long term difference to the way you do things ?
Absolutely, a direct consequence of the challenge is that we both have taken up golf and we actually walked 12 miles each yesterday.
Would you take recommend the challenge to other people ?
Yes without hesitation. Really has been a worthwhile exercise for us.
Well done, fellas! Enjoy the £50 and the golf!
