With Climate Change being one of the biggest challenges of our time, supporting your staff to cycle can make a difference. Cycling is a zero-emissions form of transport, and will help you reduce your scope three emissions.
Taking just 30 minutes to fit in a bike ride can be great not just for the planet but for your physical and mental health, plus it boosts your concentration at work. Commuting is also a great way to fit exercise around a busy schedule. Bike Week is the perfect time to promote good habits that will help your staff perform better at work too.
Health Benefits of cycling- even for short journeys
Cycling regularly improves your employee's life expectancy, reduces serious injury and improves cardiovascular fitness. The good news is that is doesn't even take a lot of cycling to see these great benefits. The government recommended minimum is five x 30 minutes of exercise a week- that's just a 15-minute ride to and from work each day.
Cycling as part of your business
Cycling can be integrated into your business. For example do you need to make regular trips to the post office? Do it on a bike! Have off-site meetings in the same city? Do it on a bike, and with an electric model, you don't even need to get changed.
