Get inspired, get fit!

I’m writing this after a lovely ride in on my Mountain Bike down the towpath from where I live in Tring.
I’ve seen countless Herons, a nesting Swan, a Guilimot (I think) Ponys grazing lazily in the feilds and Canal boats bobbing gently on the err.. Canal
I have arrived at work in a good mood, ready for the day and feeling that bit fitter!

This got me thinking, how hard would it be for YOU to do the same?
If you own a bike, all it takes is a little forward planning and a slightly earlier start.
We have a fully equipped class leading Cycle workshop to deal with any mechanical woes you may have and all the facilities you could need here to make your pedal journey to work a happy one (even if it’s tipping down!)

So there really is no excuse! Why not give it a try? I’m more than happy to take a few mins out of my day to help you get started, so why not make it a VERY late New Years resolution.

You’ll thank me for it!!!

It’s not easy being green

“It’s not easy being green” a colleague says this morning.  Wrong.  It is easy. 

Director of Learning and Skills

Not to abandon private cars, holidays or the other life-changing things – they are difficult for most.  But to turn a light off, shut down a computer, turn the heating down a degree, empty your car boot of rubbish, drive 5mph slower?  Easy. 

These are all marginal changes that accumulate to major savings and help the environment.  And none of them impinge upon personal freedoms or cause any great inconvenience. 

ATG occupies a large, air-conditioned, well-lit building.  It needs to if it is to provide comfortable premises suitable for its excellent courses.  We will work to reduce our energy consumption this year.  By every one of 82 staff making their own marginal saving.  We can feel proud of the environmental impact and share in the financial benefit.
