Get motivated this Autumn with Active October

Travelwest and Sustrans are encouraging all staff living in the West of England to take part in Active October!

Active October is a fun, online journey-logging tool, that can record your journeys and help to challenge yourself to be more active throughout October.

With the Covid 19 pandemic impacting on how we travel and work, you can now record your activity even when you are working from home.

There will be prizes and encouragement along the way and you can also interact with your colleagues and share your experiences. The Challenge runs from Thursday 1st to 31 October 2020.

What is the Challenge?

The Challenge is designed to encourage people from any organisation in Bath & NE Somerset, Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire to travel actively and switch to walking, cycling – for all or part of journeys – and to public transport where appropriate.

You can log any journey such as your usual commute, a trip to the shops, or the school run. Many more people are working from home now, so the Challenge also encourages you to have a break and walk, run or cycle during the day, and you can log these activities too.

It’s free and easy to take part and you can log your journeys for business travel too. All you need to do is register to take part and start logging your journeys in October to move up the leader board. Anyone in the travelwest area can take part and you can compete against other organisations and individuals too.

It’s great fun and we’ll be giving out loads of prizes along the way!

Sustrans have created an online portal for us to log our activities, win prizes and join workplace and individual leaderboards! The aim of the challenge is to keep people active during October, and to switch to sustainable travel modes. You can log various types of activities, even working from home if this applies to you!
