Cycle fitness challenge

Published25th August 2017

More than 60 businesses took part in a cycle fitness challenge in Ipswich.

The event was staged at the Old Custom House on the Waterfront by ABP Ipswich, Ipswich Borough Council and Elmy Cycles and raised around £1,000 for the Mayor’s charities.

The event included a series of static sprint classes by Borough Council instructors and sprint challenges over 500 metres for participating businesses and members of the public. The Council and its partners are committed to supporting businesses and their staff to get active and healthy.

The Mayor, Councillor Sarah Barber, who took part, said: “It was a great opportunity to be working with ABP Ipswich and Elmy Cycles to involve more business people as well as the public in our fitness campaigns and to raise money for my charity fund at the same time.”

The Mayor’s nominated charities this year are FIND – Families in Need, Lighthouse - Women’s Aid Ipswich and The Ipswich Hospital Charity.
