2013 Golden Minute Challenge

Throughout 2013, many people took part in the Urban Limits ‘Golden Minute Challenge’ which required members of the public to cycle as fast as they could on the turbo trainer for one minute, and all distances were recorded for each person.

As part of our cycle challenge, we entered everyone who took part into our competition to win a Garmin Edge 800, designed as a GPS to plan your cycle routes and keep you on track.

We took our challenge across Berkshire, running events in Wokingham, Reading, Slough, Newbury and Windsor. Our aim was not only to encourage people to take part in the challenge but to also give them information and advice around cycle and road safety.

One of our key cycling challenges was the Tour of Berkshire 2013, where we covered 156 miles in three days, passing through six major towns whilst managing to run our events and bike challenges as we went along.

We met some great people on our way, some who were really interested in knowing more about keeping safe on the roads, and others who were slightly more competitive to beat their friends at the cycle challenge!

One lucky winner has now been drawn at random and the prize has gone to Paul Morris in Slough, who managed to cycle a respectable distance of 0.39 in one minute. Congratulations Paul and thanks to everyone who took part this year.
