A bicycle-friendly workplace is great for companies and their employees. Cycling can contribute to the success of a business or organisation and supporting employees getting to work by cycling is a worthwhile investment.
Walking and cycling are the cleanest and most efficient forms of transport, particularly suited for short to moderate distances. Both provide numerous benefits. They improve health, do not produce air or noise pollution and help to reduce congestion.
Introducing cycling infrastructure (e.g. bike lanes, bike parking and hire schemes) are ways in which cities can promote cycling, while creating pedestrian-friendly spaces can promote commuting, shopping and recreation.
