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.

What? Apply for funding of up to £25,000 for facilities, such as showers or bike racks, that will encourage staff to travel by bike.

Why? Promoting cycling can support a happier, healthier workforce and enhance corporate social responsibility.

Who? The fund is available to all employers in Scotland who are working towards becoming Cycling Friendly.

How? Register interest in funding or contact us directly on for advice and support.

Our nationally recognised award provides a framework, resources and one-to-one support to increase staff cycle rates, and rewards those organisations working hard to encourage workplace cycling. Assessors from accredited Cycling Friendly centres across Scotland will support you through the process.

Working towards Cycling Friendly Employer status will support criteria of the Walk at Work Award.
