Taking part in the #LoveToRide initiative, the team were encouraged to leave the car at home and take to two wheels…
Cycle September provides an opportunity for companies and employees to get involved at any level, cycling to work or just for fun. With some lovely weather in store, staff set about gathering the miles to win points, gain fitness and save carbon emissions!
The team racked up at total of 849 points from 449miles (722km) including 23 commute trips, saving 194lbs (88kg) CO2, resulting in a classification of 6th overall for companies in Devon with 20-49 staff.
Ranking (Devon 20-49 employees)
Results are classified in employee number groups for fairness and broken down into Global, National and Regional categories.
Nationally, TCi comes a strong 46th out of 266 and is 80th out of 379 participating companies in the 20-49 employees class worldwide. The team also finds itself in 2nd place Nationally and 1st place for Devon amongst construction companies.
Speaking on the achievement, Marketing Manager Ben Gibbs said; “it’s been good to have something to work towards where everyone can contribute in their own way, riding to work or just for fun. Encouraging others to cycle is tough because the hills around here are hard going, but it’s very rewarding to see the impact on carbon emissions versus car travel and great to be getting some fresh air and exercise in this beautiful part of the world!”
Great stats for Devon!
Across the whole county of Devon, 1,494 participants across 136 organisations clocked up 205,126miles and saved 10,240lbs (4645kg) CO2.
