The Reaseheath team in Lands End
DiscoverCycling was proud to help a team from Reaseheath College in their John O'Groats to Lands End ride, which raised over £2,800 for North West Air Ambulance.
Starting on 15 April, the team of seven, led by Mark Hardy, Student Services Co-ordinator at Reaseheath College, made their way down the UK, travelling the 874 miles in 13 days.
The team made their trip on Claud Butler bicycles sold by DiscoverCycling. Working closely with Mark and the team, DiscoverCycling ensured that the bicycles were properly fitted and equipped for each rider.
"The Claud Butler bikes that you supplied did very well for us," Mark said. "And the whole team has got nothing but praise for their solidity and performance."
DiscoverCycling congratulates the Reaseheath College team for their accomplishment, and is happy to support charity rides across the UK. Please contact the team on 0845 375 1774 or email@example.com for more information.

DiscoverCycling supported a charity bike ride for Save the Children at Sherwood Pines Forest Park, Edwinstowe on Saturday, 12th February.
The ride, sponsored by DiscoverCycling and Reckitt Benckiser, gave riders two options – the Adventure Trail, which was 6 miles long and built for the more skilled off-road user, or the Family Cycle, which was 3 miles long and suitable for all ages and abilities. Riders could either raise money in advance, or arrive on the day for time trial racing, with the fastest racers and biggest fundraisers winning prizes donated by DiscoverCycling.
The winners were:
- Most money raised:
- John Greely (Adult)
- Chloe Sharpe (Child)
- Fastest lap:
- Duncan Chan-Pensley (Adult)
- Tyler Chan-Pensley (Child)
The organiser of the event, Martin Ridgers, first learned about DiscoverCycling through the Discover Cycling To Work cycle scheme, which came to Reckitt Benckiser, Martin’s workplace, to help more employees cycle to work. In June, Martin and 29 other Reckitt Benckiser colleagues will be going to Petrolina, Brazil, to help renovate crèches for children.

Reckitt Benckiser discovers cycling!
Date added: 07/12/2010
DiscoverCycling is working with Reckitt Benckiser, the global consumer goods company, to help their staff in the United Kingdom discover the joys of cycling to work through the government’s Cycle to Work initiative and CycleScheme.
Known for brands such as Nurofen, Strepsils and Gaviscon, Reckitt Benckiser’s Healthcare International headquarters are based in Beeston, Nottingham. When they looked for a provider for their CycleScheme programme, which allows employees to buy bicycles tax-free and through their salary, they chose DiscoverCycling and their employee-focused website – DiscoverCyclingToWork.co.uk.
DiscoverCycling will be at Reckitt Benckiser’s on Wednesday and Friday to introduce the CycleScheme deal, display some of the cycles available on DiscoverCyclingToWork.co.uk, and to discuss options with employees.
DiscoverCycling can also work with your company as well. For more information, please see our DiscoverCyclingToWork Employers’ Overview or contact us on 0115 75 0100 or email email@example.com.

Date added: 01/12/2010
Winners of the Sport Nottinghamshire Shape Up Notts! Workplace Challenge
Ridewise, a Nottingham-based cycling organisation, won the Sport Nottinghamshire Shape Up Notts! Workplace Challenge. The challenge saw businesses from across Nottinghamshire swap their cars for bicycles, changing their lifestyles to become more active. Each competitor gained points for the amount of exercise they did and CO2 they saved, with the winners receiving funding to improve the active lifestyle facilities at their workplace.
Ridewise cycled their way to the top spot, winning not only the first place for average points across the competitors, but also for total CO2 saved, saving a huge 4,056.44kgs of CO2 – equivalent to around 1,636 litres of petrol! With the prize money, RideWise will be offering packages to small and medium-sized companies to help their staff cycle to and from work and, where feasible, on company business.
DiscoverCycling works in close partnership with RideWise, supporting the training and activities RideWise delivers across Nottinghamshire to help more people cycle safely and enjoyably.
