Congratulations to Nathan from Loughborough

Nathan downloaded the BetterPoints app and joined the Choose How You Move challenge two years ago. He has enjoyed taking part and making changes to the way he commutes to work. 

Here is what he said about taking part:

"Since joining BetterPoints I have bought an e-bike which I use for commuting 8-9 miles to work and back each day.

I am not a confident cyclist (having only learnt to ride in adulthood). Cycling to work still makes me nervous however the BetterPoints challenge has helped to keep me going. This week was the first week where I didn't use my car to get to work all week! I am really enjoying getting out and riding my bike through the countryside.

I believe I have improved my health since downloading the app, it has given me that added incentive of collecting points when doing exercise. Since having the app I have completed various running and walking challenges including the Great North Run last year.

Every little bit of motivation to get out and do some exercise and use my car less is worth it!” 

Well done Nathan keep up the good work!
