How it works

From Friday 1st until Wednesday 30th September you are invited to take part in the Peterborough Travelchoice Challenge. The challenge invites individuals and businesses across Peterborough to compete to see who can travel most sustainably during September. Building on the success of the previous Peterborough Cycle Challenges this year’s challenge is open to all sustainable modes of travel. 

The idea is simple – leave your car behind and walk, cycle, take public transport or car share for as many journeys as possible this September, log your trips on the website and earn points for every sustainable trip made. As your points total builds, so does your chance of winning a prize!

It’s easy to take part, just register here, encourage your colleagues to do likewise and let the Peterborough Travelchoice Challenge begin! You can start logging your trips from 1st September – remember to log all sustainable trips and keep an eye on the leaderboards!

Earning points

Every trip* travelled in a sustainable way will be rewarded with points towards your individual and team totals. Points are allocated based on the mode which makes up the greatest proportion of a trip e.g. if you walk 1 mile and get the bus for 3 miles, you'll earn 5 points for that journey.
  • Walk / run – 10 points per trip
  • Cycle – 10 points
  • Car share – 5 point
  • Bus / train – 5 point
  •  

    *By trip, we mean a journey from your starting point to your destination. Don't forget to log both trips in a return journey!

Referral Bonus

You can earn bonus points by encouraging your friends and colleagues to sign up to the challenge. Just ask them to insert your username or email address when they register for the challenge, and you will receive 10 bonus points once they have logged their first trip.

Points mean medals

Medals will be awarded to you as you clock up the points. Check your profile page and the leaderboads to see what you’ve been awarded and check how many points you’ve got to go until your next step up. Teams also receive medals based on their average points, so be sure to encourage everyone to do their best!
  • Bronze – 100-200 points
  • Silver – 201-250 points
  • Gold – 250-300 points
  • Platinum – 300+ points

Prizes

Prizes will be up for grabs once participants reach the medal stages, with challengers in with the chance of winning a variety of shopping or cinema vouchers!

Each week we will also award spot prizes across all medal groups.
