Cycling Friendly Employer

Help your staff to choose a healthy, sustainable and accessible way to commute. 

Our nationally recognised programme provides an award scheme and funding to help organisations make it easier for their staff to cycle to work and at work. 

Cycling supports good physical and mental health for staff as well as eases congestion, improves the local environment and enhances corporate social responsibility by reducing the carbon footprint.
