It is time to get on your bikes . . .

CYCLISTS in Wigan are encouraged to use their bike to travel to work for European Mobility Week.

The event, which lasts between September 16 and 22, is part of Manchester Friends of the Earth’s Love Your Bike campaign.

People in the borough are invited to take the Get2 Challenge and travel to work or college using a healthier and more sustainable method of transport.

All people have to do is leave the car at home and travel to and from their place of work/study by bicycle, bus, train, tram or walking at least once during European Mobility week.

They then simply record their journeys on the Get2 challenge website and be in with a chance to win fabulous prizes including £200 cycle shop vouchers and System One travel cards.

Anyone can take part in the Get2 Challenge on an individual basis, and businesses, organisations, schools and colleges can register and encourage their staff and students to take part as a team.
