Commuters are being urged to swap four wheels for two and take part in a week-long competition to promote cycling to work.
Ride to Work week runs from March 13-19 and offers cyclists in Cheshire East a chance to win fantastic prizes — including top of the range bike gear.
Cyclists who regularly cycle to work can take part, as well as new riders who want to try cycling for their daily commute.
Local employers, including Bentley Motors, AstraZeneca, South Cheshire College and Cheshire East Council have already signed up to take part in Ride to Work week, with staff logging their bike journeys via the Love to Ride website.
Everyone who signs up is entered into a daily prize draw and there's a chance to track your progress against colleagues and other employers online.
The friendly competition is being backed by Travel Cheshire, a Cheshire East Council project set up to promote 'active travel' across the borough, including cycling and walking.
Prizes include brand new bikes, bike luggage from recycling company UPSO, and a cycling holiday to Cuba from Exodus Travel.
Cheshire East cyclists will also have a chance to win a new bike courtesy of Crewe's Community Recycle Cycles
