North East Connected

Hopping Across The North East From Hub To Hub

Get on your bike and send in your photos

KEEN cyclists of all ages are being encouraged to get out, explore the borough on their bikes and send in photos of their adventures.

Whether a keen biker, or someone who has just taken their first journey, the Health Improvement team want pictures of people on their bikes and anyone aged 5-19 years old who submits a photo will be entered into a cracking competition.

The best overall picture will win a £150 voucher to stock up on all manner of cycling gear at Halfords. As well as an overall prize, there are numerous age group prizes:

  • Best picture 5-7 year olds – Bike equipment worth £30
  • Best picture 8-11 year olds – £30 high street shopping voucher
  • Best picture 12-16 year olds – £30 high street shopping voucher
  • Best picture 17-19 year olds – Three month Everyone Active leisure centre pass

The competition is to promote more activity over the sunnier summer months and encourage more people to explore the great outdoors on their bikes with the benefits of improving their health.

Cllr Lynn Pallister, Cabinet Member for Health, Housing & Welfare, said: “The competition is a great way to encourage young people to get on their bikes and go and enjoy the borough. We have beaches, forests and countryside that are great to cycle through and the chance of winning a great prize is a nice extra incentive.”

Photos can be sent to healthimprovement@redcar-cleveland.gov.uk, and emails should include: name, age, address and a short description of what you were doing.
