Getting your workplace cycling
Data from the 2021 census showed that as many as 45% of the UK's workforce travel to work by car, despite over 20% living just 5 miles or less from work. That means millions of people across the UK could reap the health, financial and environmental benefits of active travel, given the right support. That's where you come in. Together, we can help make active travel the natural choice for your colleagues.
Not only does integrating cycling into your business reduce pollution and enable your colleagues to take action against climate change daily, the science overwhelmingly shows that commuters who cycle to work are healthier, happier and more productive - so there are tangible opportunities to drive organisational efficiency through active travel too.
We're here to help you unlock the benefits of active travel for your people. For over 140 years, we’ve been championing cycling as a vehicle of change. Over that time we’ve developed lifetimes' worth of expertise, and a comprehensive suite of products to help you make cycling happen in your workplace.
