Claire walks off with free Passes for the city
Meet prize winner, Claire Gration, who has snapped up two FREE York Passes by taking part in i-Travel York. We caught up with Claire on the City Walls this week to present her with her well-earned prize from our July prize draw.
Claire and her family (husband Matthew and children Thomas and Megan) have made some remarkable changes to their travel patterns recently. Both Claire and her husband Matthew were driving into work together but, following a recent office move and a visit by i-Travel York Travel Adviser Stephen, have now started cycling and walking more. Matthew has even taking up running into work too (he’s very keen!)
For their i-Travel York travel challenges, Claire decided to try to walk the City Walls during her lunch hour four times in a week and Matthew cycled to work instead of taking the car.
The whole family have also signed up to take part in this year’s Sky Ride in York on 14 September, which promises to be a great family-friendly event, with a traffic-free ride through the city. Thomas loves cycling and Megan (who’s also a scooter enthusiast) has already been training in preparation for the event – by recently coming off her bike stabilisers!
Claire and Megan also walked the York Cat Trail recently and, with an interest in some of the other York attractions that are on offer, the team at i-Travel York is confident that the family will enjoy using their York Passes. These special passes offer free entry into a choice of many of York's top visitor attractions.
