The Winter Wheelers challenge at SPFT
It can be hard to stay active in the winter months. As the weather gets colder and the nights draw in, it can be easy to let your exercise routines slip in favour of the "it's Christmas, I'll start again in the new year" mindset. However, staying active during this period can help you not only keep yourself healthy but also boost your mental health during this cold period. To help provide a little extra motivation, we have partnered with Love to Ride to join in with their Winter Wheelers Challenge 2022 and get staff and users to hop back on their bikes.
The Winter Wheelers challenge is back from 1-25 December and invites you to hop on your bikes for a minimum of ten minutes a day and join them in ensuring you are getting enough daily exercise. Along with this, the challenge is also helping you save money; along with giving you that feel good feeling knowing you're having a positive impact on your environment and reducing your carbon footprint. By participating in the challenge, you are automatically entered into daily prize draws to win great prizes, including a bike worth £1,000, cycling accessories and cash prizes. There's also an 'encourager' prize draw for people who recruit friends or colleagues to join them. There are daily prizes, and one lucky winner will receive a text on Christmas Day letting them know they have won a bike!
Now as much as we want people to participate, we also want you to do so safely. To cycle safely during the winter months, make sure you keep your bike in good condition along with tyres, gears and breaks and fit some mudguards. Additionally, wear warm and waterproof clothes and make sure you are visible to drivers and pedestrians by wearing high-vis clothing and using good lights and reflectors.
