Congratulations to Chris from High Wycombe

Before Chris downloaded the BetterPoints app he was in a sedentary job and needed some motivation. He is loving his new active lifestyle and the savings made on putting petrol in his car.

Here is why he is our first Ditch the Car Star of 2024:

"I have recently taken up cycling and am now encouraged by seeing the BetterPoints earned and petrol saved for every journey. Not mentioning the benefits to my health and the environment.

As a Foot Health Practitioner I used to sit all day long. Either in the car or while treating people. All that changed and now I ride my bicycle or walk to jobs I used to drive to. I've also been far exceeding the government's guidelines for 150 minutes of weekly exercise. 

As a bonus, the cycling doesn't feel burdensome at all. In fact, I actually find it very enjoyable!"

This is great to hear Chris, keep up the great work!
