TAG Farnborough Airport cycles in support of fly2help charity
11th September 2015 by Farnborough Airport
Miles Thomas, Environment Manager at TAG Farnborough Airport successfully completed fly2help’s Weekend Cycle Challenge 2015, an event that saw cyclists ride 170 miles from Farnborough Airport to Biggin Hill, Gatwick Airport, Brighton and back to Farnborough from 5 to 6 September 2015, in support of the charity.
fly2help is a national aviation charity that inspires positive change through the wonder of flight. Its vision is for everyone to be able to access the positive benefits of aviation. The charity provides Air Smiles Days to people living in difficult situations. Aim High, its educational programme, encourages young people to consider a career in aviation.
TAG Farnborough Airport also cycled to raise awareness of its Sustainable Staff Travel Plan, which encourages cycle commuting as part of a wider commitment to reducing carbon emissions.
Thomas, who completed the ride using one of the airport’s new single-speed Mango Bikes that airport staff can use to travel between buildings and try cycle commuting, commented: “It was a privilege to take part in this charity cycle challenge, as it will give more people the opportunity to become involved in aviation through fly2help.”
