In May 2008 the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) encouraged NHS staff to cycle more.

They are heading for an overnight stay at Llandudno, and then home to Lymm in Cheshire. They have already ridden the Coast to Coast (C2C), and the Trans- Pennine cycle routes. Both of these they found to be excellent and well promoted, but stressed the need for more publicity for cycle-friendly hotels and guest houses. And most important - secure undercover cycle storage.
