Ideas for cycling to work

Cycling is environmentally friendly and provides staff with regular exercise thus helping to reduce stress. Storing cycles takes up less space than car parking.

Ideas for employers...

  • negotiate with local bike shops for discounts on bicycles and accessories for your staff
  • offer low or interest free bicycle loans
  • offer a bike promotion scheme for employees who give up their parking space
  • provide pool bikes for local site visits or meetings
  • install bicycle facilities such as cycle sheds, stands, lockers, showers and provide spare waterproof clothing
  • establish a bicycle user group to help "spread the word"
  • offer staff cycle training
  • introduce a bike buddies scheme to pair regular cyclists with the willing but less experienced
  • pay a cycle mileage allowance for work related journeys
