Just a quick update for everyone helping us to promote the European Cycle Challenge across Greater Manchester. We’re now over a week into the Challenge so here are a few stats:
· We have clocked up over 12,000km so far within GM boundaries and are currently 21st out of 52 cities across Europe
· We have had over 700 people register via the app, but only around 300 people have so far registered 10km or more (‘Active Participants’)
· The Top 5 teams in terms of ‘km inside boundary per member’ are:
o Bolton Council
o Love Your Bike
o Eversheds Sutherland
· Our first 3 weekly prize winners have been drawn and they are:
o 1st prize £150 shopping vouchers – Cyclefitz
o 2nd prize £75 shopping vouchers – Reidme
o 3rd prize – £50 shopping vouchers Clare.07
We will continue to do weekly prize draws every Monday throughout the challenge, so it’s worth joining in even as you go through the month. Winners are drawn at random from all ‘active participants’ so it’s well worth encouraging those who have registered but not logged 10km yet to get on their bikes and start recording! There will also be a Team Prize at the end of the Challenge.
Please continue to promote the challenge via any of your channels, especially via social media, using the #ecc2017eu hashtag.
Come on everyone, let’s try and get into the Top Ten by this time next week!
