Conquer the cold commuter challenge

How to 'conquer the cold' this winter

The conquer the cold commuter challenge is an online commuting competition that takes place through December to the end of March. It aims to keep green and alternative commutes going, and we invite everyone in Staffordshire to commute to work by cycling, walking, taking the bus or car sharing. 

The goal is to encourage people who may not otherwise use alternative modes of transporting to use is at least once a week during the competition and realise the health benefits, and the benefits to their wallet! 

Air pollution is a huge problem in Staffordshire, contributing to at least 600 deaths a year. Air pollution damages the health of us all, and is worse during the winter months, and actually up to 12 times worse in the car than outside the car.
