    Our Company has just signed up for this...

    Bit of harmless fun. I wasn't really interested but an ocasional cyclist commuter at work persuaded me to join.

    Guess it could encourage more of a cycling team culture in some companies and you may win some prizes.

    Since June 1st I've done 358 miles.

    so how did you do in the challenge? did you get a good team/camaraderie going?

    1,350 miles between four of us in the month of June. Me and one other colleague responsible for 1,100 of those! (He cycles in from Thornton Heath). We're based at Farringdon.

    Our Legal Director managed a hundred miles (he's 60 and used to be a keen cyclist). Told me he managed to get up Boxhill :smile:. He also cycled in one day from Thames Ditton so fair play.

    So a bit of increased camarederie between us cyclists but not much real impact on the rest of the company.

    Also appears that only two of our four cyclists' miles were counted.

    So officially my company did just shy of 700 miles. Of which I did just shy of 600.:biggrin:
