Staff and students from Borders College took part in the National Cycle to Work Day on September 4.

Ten staff and three students took part and cycled a total of 186 miles, with Liam Thomson totting up a huge 64 miles.

Cycle to Work Day is a national event, championed by multi gold medal winning Paralympic cyclist, Dame Sarah Storey, which aims to encourage everyone to take to two wheels and cycle to work for just one day.

This is the second year Borders College has taken part in this national event and it is promoted throughout the college as part of the Healthy Working Lives (HWL) programme. Borders College currently holds the Gold HWL Award.
