SO HOW DO YOU ENCOURAGE YOUR STAFF TO CYCLE TO WORK?

So how do you encourage staff to cycle to work, especially in winter? Simple measures, such as providing suitable bike storage for cyclists can help, but one of the primary objections to cycling to work is the physical strain, especially in hilly areas, such as Bath. With this in mind, many commuters are now turning to electric bicycles- the additional power helps combat the strain of all those inclines, at a much safer speed than on a normal bike, without having to resort to pushing it up the hill. In a congested city such as Bath or London, electric bikes offer an exhaust free alternative to the daily commute, reducing overall pollution and improving air quality for everyone- if enough people can be encouraged to commute on their bicycles. Cycling to work allows the commuter to nip through traffic, using the dedicated cycle and bus lanes, and can be much faster than alternatives, such as public transport. Combine this with the additional cost saving benefits accrued through reduced fuel, insurance and maintenance costs associated with driving to work, and the idea of commuting on a bike becomes more widely appealing.

So why not take the 10:10 pledge yourself, and the opportunity to improve the health and wellbeing of our businesses, staff and cities. For further information on the 10:10 pledges and employer cycling schemes, please see:

A powerful bike, I really like it! Did 40 miles on my first test. Would recommend.
