The Active Travel Challenge comes to East Sussex

A new initiative designed to encourage more people to actively commute to work will be launched in East Sussex next month.

Sustrans, the charity making  it easier for people to walk and cycle, is collaborating  with local organisations to deliver an interactive workplace challenge, which aims to encourage as many people as possible to commute to work by walking, cycling, using public transport and lift-sharing.

Supported by East Sussex County Council with funding from the Department for Transport’s Access Fund, the Active Travel Challenge will run from September 1 to 30 2018, however, people can register now to be in with a chance of winning early bird prizes.

The challenge is open to anyone who works for an organisation in East Sussex and participants can either compete on their own or as part of a team. Once registered, challengers then log their journeys to, from and during work to move up the leader board.
