A Flintshire based company is riding high after winning a competition that clocked up the most miles cycled by staff to and from work.
Meghann Wareing from Toyota received a prize of two pool bikes including helmets, panniers and racks, pumps, bike reflective jackets and bike lights along with Gary Smith and Phil Lancelotte who took part in the challenge.
Meghann said, “We are keen to support our staff to travel to work sustainably and have an excellent cycle route between Neston and Deeside finishing right at our front gate.
“Working with the itravelsmart team to promote this challenge to staff, supports our goals to encourage a healthy workforce. The pool bikes and equipment will be popular with our staff.”
Cabinet member for economic development and infrastructure councillor Brian Clarke said: “I would like to congratulate Toyota after their cyclists logged 9,599 miles during the challenge.
“The itravelsmart team have been working with businesses on Deeside Industrial Estate due to the high number of staff commuting from Cheshire West and Chester.”
The Love to Ride challenge area managed by itravelsmart logged a total of 75,432 miles cycled representing 249,574 calories burnt.
Itravelsmart is funded by the Local Sustainable Transport Fund, a Department for Transport Programme, aimed at achieving economic growth, job expansion and carbon reduction through generating sustainable journeys to work.
