Get cycling this September and win prizes

The National Cycle Challenge is a fun, free competition to see which workplace can get the most employees cycling and we’d like to get involved. There are lots of prizes on offer including bikes, holidays, experience vouchers and spa days - and you can win just by riding and logging a 10 minute bike ride.

To take part, register under the Waltham Forest Council team at www.lovetoride.net. Everyone who takes part will help Waltham Forest compete against other organisations and you’ll also be added to our prize draw for a chance to win tickets to the Velodrome.

To encourage you all to get involved we’ve also arranged the following activities to help you collect points and win prizes:
