Cycle Friendly Employer

The Cycle Friendly Employer award demonstrates to employees and customers that your business takes seriously its commitment to combatting climate change, improving staff well-being and providing alternative transport solutions.

How it works

Entrants are assessed on their cycle-friendly culture, infrastructure and policies. Successful nominees access bespoke, ongoing support from Cycling UK and join our prestigious network of cycle friendly employers. Our accredited businesses are putting their staff and the environment first. We know many of you are too, and we’d love to see that recognised.
