INSPIRED by the recent success of the Ironman Wales event, National Park staff took to two wheels on September 12 as part of national Cycle to Work Day.
Staff at a number of the Authority’s sites across the National Park pledged to pedal their way to work as part of the event, which hopes to see one million people regularly commuting to work by bike by 2021.
National Park Authority Chief Executive Tegryn Jones, who took part in the event said: “I’d like to congratulate all the staff who took part in this great initiative to help promote cycling to work, which a number of our workforce already do on a regular basis.
“I hope the campaign will encourage more people to make exercise a part of their daily lives, whether it’s cycling to work, for pleasure or taking a stroll on a stretch of our fantastic Pembrokeshire Coast Path.”
A total of 13 members of staff, including some from the Authority’s headquarters and Cilrhedyn Woodland Centre in the Gwaun Valley made the effort to use pedal power to get to work on the day.
