Stockton's BIG Challenge is returning for September 2014!
Stockton’s BIG Challenge is challenging Stockton residents and people working in Stockton to walk, cycle and use public transport more often.
To take part, all you need to do is log your daily walking or cycling journeys on the challenge web site to have the chance to win some great prizes. All active journeys count and you only need to travel as far as you feel comfortable so it’s easy to take part.
Once again there are some fantastic prizes on offer in the prize draws, from a relaxing weekend break for two to a manic white water rafting session!
A big thank you to all of you who took part previous competitions. So far challengers have managed to log 3951 walking trips and 4259 cycling trips and save a massive 13.8 tonnes of Carbon dioxide; burning just over 695 parmo's in the process. SO LET'S MAKE IT EVEN BIGGER THIS September!
You can find the competition results for the June 2013 challenge here.

Cycle Sisters - heels on wheels!
Cycle Sisters is a FREE Stockton based women only cycling group aiming to get more women back into cycling. 
Currently in the UK about three times more men than women ride bikes and although the popularity of cycling in the UK is growing fast, the numbers of women riding bikes is falling.
Cycle Sisters want to change this. We cater for women of all ages with relaxed, fun and non competitive rides and cycling know how. All activities try to accommodate the busy work and home commitments of women today.
What does the club offer? (all services are free)
  • Fun and relaxed rides at times to suit busy home and working lives.
  • Ladies only cycle maintenance courses.
  • On-road cycle training from your door or place of work
  • Bike MOT’s and minor repair service
  • Route planning and guidance on cycle trips
  • Impartial advice on buying a bike, clothing and accessories
  • Bike fitting service
  • Womens Cycling Network – connecting women with similar cycling journeys either to work or purely for recreation.
To find out more email, visit the cycle sisters website or 'add as a friend' "cyclesisters hub on Facebook.

Angela C says: I’ve never felt so fit and healthy in my life and its all down to the goals I have set myself.  If I can do it anyone can.
