London gets business leaders moving during City Cycling Challenge

As part of the European Mobility Week, the City of London Corporation is calling on City managers to get on their bikes and raise money for the charity Re-Cycle.

By taking part in the City Cycle Challenge, participants commit to do at least one sponsored bike ride between 16th and 22nd September.

Supported and financed by the European Commission, the European Mobility week is an awareness raising campaign to increase the use of public transport, cycling, walking and to encourage all European cities to promote these modes of transport and to invest in the necessary infrastructures.

The City of London Corporation hopes to support this campaign through their City Cycle Challenge.

Mark Boleat, Deputy Chairman of Policy at the City of London, says:

‘I hope many of our City workers will take up the challenge and help us demonstrate that not only is cycling a great way to keep fit, it is also incredibly efficient both in terms of time and in terms of its environmental impact.’

He also believes that it will support businesses who are already committed to promote cycling amongst employees as part of their active travel and corporate social responsibility agenda.
