There was great weather for the final event of 2019 Inter club series. This obviously encouraged riders as it saw a good turnout and it was great to see some young riders giving it a go, some for the first time. In the end there were six counting riders from each team, with Cambridge Triathlon coming in with a total time of 2:46:30; Newmarket C and TC 2:34:21 and Team Cambridge 3:42:01 albeit with some penalty times.
This means that Newmarket became the Series winners for the fourth time in 5:17:46. Cambridge Triathlon Club second in 5:57:31 and Team Cambridge with 7:16:32.
It's a fun, free competition to see which workplace can get the most staff to try cycling. There are loads of prizes that you can win by riding and encouraging friends and colleagues to do the same.
Love to Ride is based on a proven model that has engaged over 400,000 participants with significant long-term increases in cycling participation. However, for the programme to be a success we need regular cyclists to spread the word and help enlist their workplaces.
By taking part, you can also generate useful data that makes things better for cyclists in Cambridge. Register your workplace and you will also have the bonus of being able to show your employers the number of cyclists, which is useful in getting better facilities for those that ride, such as storage and shower.
