Bike Week offer extended!

Bike Week 2016 in Birmingham has been a little wet(!), so we're extending the BetterPoints offer for an extra week, ending on Sunday 26 June. This means you can keep logging your cycle trips to earn more entries into the prize draw, and you still have a chance to attend an activity and earn the 300 bonus points.

A few little notes:
You can only have the bonus 300 points once, but you’re welcome to come to as many activities as you like – each one can be logged as a cycling trip for another entry in the prize draw.

Every cycling trip you log in Bike Week (now extended to 11-26 June 2016) counts as one entry into the prize draw, but you can’t win more than once – sorry!

There are 4 prizes, which will be awarded after 26 June, two of 100,000 points and two of 50,000 points. There are no alternative prizes.
