Do you cycle to take a train? Get involved with this year’s Cycle-Rail Awards

Win a Garmin VIRB Elite camera

Intended to recognise progress made by the rail industry towards encouraging integrated cycle-rail travel, the 2016 Cycle-Rail Awards are now accepting nominations. The ten award categories include a photography competition with the winner set to receive a Garmin VIRB Elite camera.

The Cycle-Rail Awards have been running for 12 years with the aim of encouraging greater use of cycles to access the railway. This year they are sponsored by Cyclepods and supported by the All-Party Parliamentary Cycling Group.

The ten categories are as follows:

  • Best Customer Service
  • Partnership Working and Local Government Schemes
  • Innovation
  • Cycling Champion
  • Door to Door Journeys including Station Travel Plans
  • London Cycle Parking
  • Cycle Security
  • Station of the Year
  • Operator of the Year
  • Cycle-Rail Photography Competition

The Cycle Rail Awards website has page through which you can make nominations in each category.

The photography competition will reward “imagery that captures the essence of a cycle-rail journey and promotes it as a form of transport. Images can be factual, documentary, humorous or rely on the aesthetic beauty of the imagery or the narrative they portray.”

Entry closes on Friday September 9 at 5pm.

Alex has written for more cricket publications than the rest of the team combined. Despite the apparent evidence of this picture, he doesn't especially like cake.
