Ride It Out Competition during march

Citizens:mk members and partners (including accredited Living Wage employers and Refugee Welcome schools), are invited to participate in a fun competition to ride a bicycle in March, Ride It Out.

It requires leaders to register their organisation as a ‘Workplace’ here, then encourage their colleagues to register individually as members of both their ‘Workplace’ and the ‘Group’ Cycling CitizensMK (see how)…then go for a ride! Every ride will be added to both the organisation/workplace’s and Cycling CitizensMK’s total.

Leaders were asked to lead the way by riding a bicycle on Monday 1st March, and post a tweet or email for our website saying what was good about being on a bike. See how to do it.

Leaders committed so far (underlined if organisation is registered on Love To Ride, italicised if unconfirmed).

See gallery of riders.
