Cycling Friendly Employer

Bike for Good are proud to support Cycling Scotland as an accredited service centre for the nationally recognised Cycling Friendly Employer Award.

The award supports organisations to encourage cycling as a healthy, sustainable and accessible way to travel to work. Encouraging employees to take up active travel can increase productivity, employee satisfaction and wellbeing and reduce absences from work by up to 27%.

Employers will benefit from guidance, resources and one-to-one support to enable an increase in staff cycle rates through improvements to cycle parking and changing facilities, providing access to cycles and journey planning information and by organising cycling events and training to create a cycling culture within the workplace
