Let's Go Winners!

01 April 2022

What a month Let's Go has been!

Thank you to Leicester City and Leicestershire County Councils for bringing you the challenge.

We set workplaces the task of getting as many of their employees as possible to choose active and sustainable travel, competing against each other to win some amazing prizes.

We gave away over £5,000 worth of prizes for you and your colleagues including Amazon vouchers, family days out, outdoor gear and our biggest prize yet an Apache ebike sponsored by Rutland Cycling.

Every day participants could also win BetterPoints to redeem or donate to charity, as well as monthly bike memberships sponsored by Santander Cycles.

£500 charity donation will also be given as a reward and split across the five workplaces who achieved the most amount of their employees taking part in the challenge across the size categories (based on a percentage of the workforce). For more information on the leaderboards tap here.
