In the run up to International Women’s Day from 28th February to 8th March, the charity Smart Works is challenging friends, families, colleagues and community to take part in the ultimate team cycling challenge, raising the much-needed funds to help Smart Works clients transform their lives in 2020.
They are calling for teams of five brave individuals to come together and take up the challenge of cycling at least 500 miles in one week. You can hit your 500 mile target in a variety of ways including cycling to work or on the weekend, spin or gym classes and even setting up a stationary bike in your office. There will be a bike in 1FA reception to get your miles in and help you reach your target, kindly donated by Fitness First.
