The aim of the Challenge is to get as many of your colleagues as possible to cycle to work over the 4 week Challenge period, from 1st to 31st May 2012.
It's not about doing the most miles. It's about getting more people to experience how much fun and how easy regular cycling to work can be. There are so many benefits - getting fit, staying healthy, saving money, feeling less stressed, and being kind to the environment. And there are some great prizes to be won for teams and individuals. More about prizes.
We are particularly encouraging new commuting cyclists to join the Challenge. See our top tips for new cyclists here.
Just join here email your colleagues, and start having some fun cycling to work!

What's in it for me?
Warning! the Challenge is seriously good for your health! And a lot of fun. It's a great motivator and will inspire you to do more exercise and get fitter and heathier. You will be doing your bit for the environment by saving Co2 emissions. And you can win some great prizes! More about individual prizes.
What's in it for my team?
The Challenge is great for a spot of friendly competition and team building. Getting more active can improve motivation and morale at work. And your team could win prizes, too! More about team prizes. There are 2 team sizes, size 10 and 20. You can select a team size that best suits the work unit, office/ building, department or informal group of colleagues you would like to join the Challenge, and compete against other Raynesway teams of the same size.
But I don't have a bike!
You can hire a bike and equipment for the Challenge period, for free! Reserve your bike here. If you are new to cycling in the area, come down to the Challenge Launch Day on 30th April to pick up a local cycling map, get some advice from an experienced cyclist or get a free bike safety check!
