Cycling to Work Resource (2003)

In 2003, the Department for Transport funded the production of an informative, online resource on cycling to work. It was based on the findings of CTC's Benchmarking programme, which identified a number of local authority initiatives that were setting the 'benchmark' in this field.

The Cycling to Work resource, which is now available (largely unrevised) as a document, includes:

  • An introduction to the Benchmarking process
  • Why cycle commuting should be encouraged
  • Advice on:
    • Company travel plans
    • Mobility management
    • Infrastructure for cycling employees (e.g. cycle parking, showers etc)
    • Provision of cycles (e.g. pool bikes, promotional initiatives)
  • Tips for cycle commuters, training, support and incentives
  • Case studies

It is still a good source of ideas for anyone interested in promoting cycling to work.
