One of Jack's sponsor tags to be read along the lines of "Jack's weather is brought to you by this not so subtle message from Oxfordshire County Council. Worried that your butt looks big in this? The cycle to work and shake them in the people stuck in their cars, as you zoom past. "

Joint programme director Sue Carter says: "It is fantastic to be able to team with Oxfordshire County Council on such a positive message and the ability to express them in the language is parents and children sit and notice."
