Lancashire Cycling Challenge

08 Jun 2014


I am all for keeping active and also participating in challenges as long as they don’t force you too far out of your comfort zone and don’t actually lead to accident or injury because you are not physically and mentally fully prepared for them.

It’s great to raise money for good causes, but there is no point in doing a long walk, run or other physically demanding activity to raise money for charity if you have not prepared your body and mind with adequate training, nutrition, and rest. You could be setting yourself up for a fall doing that, and why ? It’s your health and happiness after all.

A new challenge launching in Lancashire next week which you can combine with Nordic walking to boost your health and fitness is the Lancashire Cycle Challenge.


What is the Lancashire Cycle Challenge?

The Lancashire Cycle Challenge is a fun, free competition to encourage your colleagues to experience first hand joys and benefits of riding a bike. There are lots of fantastic prizes on offer to tempt your team; from cinema tickets and local restaurant vouchers, to bike gear to support your cycle journey.

How it works

It’s all about participation – which workplaces can get the most people to ride a bike for just 10 minutes or more?

Lancashire businesses will compete against each other to see who can get the most staff to ride a bike between 16 June – 6 July.

It’s not about who can cycle the most miles, but who can encourage the most people to give cycling a go.
