Cycling fan wins a very special prize with Cycle Solutions

Posted - October 27, 2015

A cycling fan will be enjoying their very special prize after winning £1,000 to spend on a GIANT bike of their choice with Cycle Solutions.

 Claudette Thomlinson from near Wolverhampton won the top prize after entering a prize draw at the recent Cycle Show at Birmingham NEC.

Claudette said: "I've enjoyed cycling for many years and thought why not enter the competition I could do with a new bike. But I really didn't believe I would win, I never win anything!"

"I was absolutely over the moon when Cycle Solutions told me I'd won."

Claudette was drawn as the winner after hundreds of cycle enthusiasts entered the prize draw after completing an online survey about a cycle to work scheme. 

Cycle Solutions Director Steve Edgell said: "From our research we know there is a real love for cycling with over 74% of employees saying they would be likely to join a cycle to work scheme if offered as an employee benefit.* So what better way to promote this than with a competition. So we launched our win a £1,000 GIANT bike competition.

Claudette continued: "I visited the Cycle Solutions stand to understand a little more about cycle to work schemes. I've cycled to work on a number of occasions and Cycle Solutions team was really informative and gave me lots of advice and highlighted the benefits of having the scheme." 

I'll definitely be using my new bike along with my husband who is a member of the local road bike league and also the British Cycling Association. I may even enjoy cycling to work on it too. I'm thrilled to have won!"


This is the first consumer bike competition Cycle Solutions have run and is part of a marketing campaign to drive awareness of Cycle Solutions Cycle to Work Scheme. To find out how to launch a Cycle Solution Scheme with your employer visit
