Those planning to put on their cycling gear and take on some biking challenges in the Lake District may be hard-pushed to match the efforts of some National Park Authority staff.
A total of 41 staff members cycled more than 10,000 miles in electronically recorded trips, with project officer Richard Fox performing best at 1,020 miles and chief executive Richard Leafe managing 273.
The undertaking was part of the South Lakeland Action on Climate Change annual cycle challenge, showing how people can save carbon by using road bikes
instead of cars.
As well as cycling along the roads around the national park, visitors can also enjoy mountain biking in a number of locations.
Mr Leafe said: "It's wonderful when we can all have such fun but at the same time can help with the important task of reducing our Lake District carbon footprint."
Facilities for Mountain bikes
include the Altura Trail in the Whinlatter Forest, which rises 1,600 ft above the nearby town of Keswick.
