Warwickshire cyclists rode 'around the world' during Winter Wheelies campaign

Posted on in Business News , Cycles News

Cyclists in Warwickshire rode around the world during December as part of an initiative to encourage safe winter cycling.

Country Cycling

As part of Love to Ride’s Winter Wheelies campaign, 269 riders from 27 workplaces in the county logged a collective distance of 25,054 miles – more than the circumference of the earth.

Two Warwickshire riders also won limited edition Love To Ride t-shirts during the event.

Warwickshire County Council (WCC) is in the second year of its partnership with Love to Ride, giving residents, businesses and community groups access to rewards and resources which encourage cycling for travel and not just for leisure.

WCC transport spokesman Coun Jan Matecki said: “It’s fantastic that so many of our cyclists in the county came out to support the Winter Wheelies campaign and recorded such a large distance of cycled miles at a time of the year when even the most hardened cyclists will often decide against getting their bikes out.

“The ongoing investments in cycling infrastructure across Warwickshire can mean that more of our residents can reap the environmental and health benefits of cycling all year round and that’s great to see.”
