Cycling makes for good business...

Research has found that cycling staff equate to better business - increased productivity, improved health and fitness, reduced stress levels and better punctuality.

So for organisations the adoption of a cycle-centric approach to staff travel can provide a number of key benefits, such as:

  • A healthier workforce – resulting in fewer days lost through illness
  • A more productive workforce – reduced stress levels, better wellbeing and improved timekeeping
  • Enhancing ones Corporate Social Responsibility and reputation
  • Generating positive PR
  • Assisting with environmental compliance
  • Helping to meet Greenhouse Gas emissions and targets
  • Reducing company or private car use and car parking provision

We all know how important sustainability is. Global warming and escalating CO2 emissions added to the rising cost and diminishing reserves of fuel all point to changes being needed in our travel habits. Luckily these changes can be made in simple ways resulting in many positive effects.

"For every hour of cycling you can burn about 400 calories. If you cycle on a regular basis you will have more energy, you will feel better, be less stressed, you will lose weight and tone your muscles."
