Yes, you did hear that headline correctly...
Backed by athletics World Champion Colin Jackson, Anchor Hanover’s Get Set, Cycle challenge encourages residents and colleagues to cycle the distance of the Tour de France.
For many, the pandemic has meant a significant change in lifestyle. We’ve spent more time at home, increasing our awareness of the consequences of physical inactivity. As a nation we talked about, and embraced, fitness more than ever before. We’re also more aware of the importance of community and connecting with those around us.
Now with the country gradually reopening and with various restrictions lifted, Anchor Hanover want to make sure that these good habits remain, and that we at Anchor Hanover continue to provide residents with fun and engaging activities, that benefit their mental and physical wellbeing.
That’s why, this summer, Anchor Hanover are encouraging everyone to take part in Get, Set Cycle to keep healthy, maintain mental wellbeing, and connect with others. The challenge aims to unite the nation with Anchor Hanover’s residents in a shared love of cycling, with a collective goal of cycling 2,102 miles – the same distance as the Tour De France – to help maintain wellbeing and strengthen community connections following a year of social restrictions.
