The 2013 Workforce Workfit Cycling Challenge is about to commence! We’ve got over fifty businesses from across the northeast turning up this weekend to compete in the Tacx Turbo time trial. Latest additions to the competition include a team from Pathology in the NHS (should have called their team Silent Witness in my view,) some Architects, some environmental types ( the Green team?) and some media sorts (The Luvvys?). The finest thighs in the North East will be in action in our two premier Malls distracting shoppers from their bargain hunting and hopefully focusing everyone’s mind on the wonderful world of cycling possibilities. One thing I have learnt about cyclists from this exercise is that some of them are very keen indeed and ask lots of technical questions about the route and lots of questions about shoes.
Also, all the teams wanted to make sure they aren’t riding against the Royal Marines team for some reason.
Riders have been advised not to wear platforms or flares which may get caught in the spokes of the bike. I don’t know how we would have managed in the seventies.
