As well as being an effective method to reduce congestion and travel costs, cycling is also a great way to introduce physical activity into everyday life. Employees who build exercise into their day are likely to be healthier and more alert at work. With only a little effort on your part, cycling can make up a significant proportion of commutes to your organisations site.
Improving the standard and availability of cycle parking is one of the most immediate things that you can do to encourage cycling to work. There is much guidance available on this issue though the main principles are that the facility is secure and is located in a place where it is highly visible (right next to the main entrance is perfect). It's also better to make sure the bikes are under cover as cycle chains can rust in the rain.
To encourage those wishing to try out their daily commute to work on a bicycle before having to commit to the expense of purchasing one, easitNETWORK will loan bikes for an agreed period of time. We have a selection of male, female, folders (to overcome the peak hour ban on trains) and electric bikes which can be delivered to your offices, fully serviced and ready to go. There is a one off charge of between £25 - £40 for the delivery, collection and servicing of the bicycle (dependent on location).
easitNETWORK members have access to a cost effective and tax efficient way to provide a bicycle and accessories to its employees through a salary sacrifice arrangement with P&MM. Employees can make savings in tax and national insurance whilst enjoying a healthier commute. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
