Cycle Ambassador Scheme
Monday, 24 August 2009
The Smarter Travel team at Richmond council have set up a cycle ambassador scheme to encourage people to cycle more often. It is open to anyone over 18 who lives, works or studies in Richmond. If this isn't you, please think of someone who might be interested in taking part either as an ambassador or buddy and send them the link to this post.
The idea is that a cyclist decides to be an ambassador and signs up. The ambassador then finds a buddy who could be a friend, relative, partner or colleague who would like to do more cycling and they sign up as well. Ambassador and buddy then go off and do some cycling, preferably together ;-) Ambassadors get a £25 voucher and buddies get discounts in bike shops, discounted cycle training and a free handlebar bag.
Buddying is a great way to get people cycling. Many cyclists already gently persuade the people in their lives of the benefits of cycling. Now cyclists can do all the persuading they like and everyone gets a reward. Sign up now and get twenty five pound for cycling around!
Register to be an ambassador before September 12th and you will be entered into a prize draw to win one of three prizes. Both ambassadors and buddies will be entered into a prize draw to win a rucksack full of cycling goodies. Terms and conditions of the prize draws are available at the links below or by email.
If you want to find out more, come along to the Ambassador's workshop on 12th September where you can ask any questions and get a chance to sign up and enter the prize draw. The workshop will be at the staff social club in Clarendon House, nr York House, Twickenham, TW1 3AA from 10:00 onwards.
If you can't attend the workshop, come along to Richmond Cycling Campaign's new maintenance workshop where you can work on your own bike under the supervision of a qualified mechanic and get your ambassador questions answered. It will run bi-weekly starting Wednesday 2nd September at 20:00 in the Long Room, All Hallows Church, Twickenham, TW1 1EW
