From January through to 10 March we set the challenge of completing at least four Breeze and/or Guided Rides as part of Let's Ride Through Winter 2022 - and riders well and truly stepped up despite the cold, dark and dampness!
An incredible 1,095 people completed the challenge, covering miles of fun and friendly group riding across the country. Together with partners, See.Sense, our pledge was to plant a tree for every challenge completed... but we're delighted to be able to double this planting (carried out by WeForest) thanks to the team at See.Sense being a really generous bunch.
So 1,095 trees has turned into 2,190 thanks to their match funding! And despite the memories of cold rides, we hope anyone who took part is reading this with a warm sense of achievement; your efforts really have contributed to a significant boost to the environment.
Here's See.Sense CEO, Philip McAleese, on their work with WeForest:
"See.Sense have been working with WeForest since 2014, planting thousands of trees over the last eight years. WeForest conducts vital work to make the earth cooler, and by planting trees as part of sustainable habitats, ensures ecological integrity in new habitats that results in long lasting forests. Through this challenge, British Cycling are having a positive impact on our planet, and See.Sense are proud to be playing a part in this."
