New Gear Resolutions

We received some brilliant pledges as part of our New Gear Resolutions campaign. Thank you to all those who submitted their 2024 active commuting commitments.

A special congratulations goes to Kelly-Jay from Renew Holdings who is the lucky winner in our Thorpe Park prize draw, receiving a £25 voucher for some new active travel gear. Kelly-Jay pledged to hit an amazing 13,000 steps per day! She is also training for the Leeds half marathon at the moment and is running or walking most days.

As part of this, Kelly-Jay is fundraising for the 4Louis charity and has raised over £1,000 so far! For more information, head over to her Just Giving page here.

In the 2024 commuting pledges, we saw lots of people committing to getting on their bikes more this year, including one pledge of cycling a 44 mile round trip to Thorpe Park! If you’re planning on using your bike more this year, why not bring it along to our first Dr Bike session of 2024, on 27th March? Our friends at Halfords will be on hand to undertake free safety checks and basic servicing. Spaces are limited and need to be booked in advance here.

Using different bus stops was also a popular commitment to gain some easy but additional footsteps each day!

We also had a couple of pledges from people who want to make car sharing their commitment this year, which is great to see. We’d encourage those (and anyone else across Thorpe Park) to sign up for free to Liftshare to find suitable car sharing buddies! More information on what car sharing is, including the benefits and how to get started can be found in our guide here.
