Chamber lssues cycling challenge to businesses.
KIRKLEES business people are being urged to get on their bikes.
The Lockwood-based Mid Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce is encouraging local business people to take to two wheels on September 4 for Cycle to Work Day. The national event is championed by multigold medal winning Paralympic cyclist Dame Sarah Storey (pictured).
Census data suggests that a massive 760,000 people in the UK cycle to work regularly - and the number keeps growing. Last year's event saw 20,000 commuters take their two-wheelers onto the roads and cycle more than 250,000 miles on Cycle to Work Day.
The Chamber is asking locals to get in the saddle by pledging miles for Cycle to Work Day on the website www.cycletoworkday.org Cycle to Work Day also falls on the same day as the chamber's popular breakfast Connections Count event. The Chamber is asking as many attendees as possible to cycle to Connections Count, which takes place at the Cedar Court Hotel, Wakefield. For details, visit www.mycci.co.uk
