Campus Cyclists Rise To Challenge

Cyclists at the Harwell Oxford Campus put in a great effort for this year’s Oxfordshire Cycle Challenge and gained results to match. Organisations of all sizes joined in from STFC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory with 1000+ employees, to Magellium UK Ltd with 9 employees.

The results are now official. Competition was tough against Oxford based organisations, but STFC-RAL came first in the 500+ employee category after a tussle at the top with Oxfam. The ISIS department at STFC-RAL came second on their own in the 200 to 499 employee category, with Diamond Light Source taking third place.

Other campus organisations taking part were; Research Sites Restoration Ltd., AEA Group, Nuvia, Nuclear Decommissioning Authority, Magellium UK Ltd. and Amec.
