There’s no doubting the fact that cycling is becoming more popular in the UK and lots of people now choose to travel to work on two wheels. As an employer, it may pay off for you to invest in new bike shelters for your personnel. As well as boosting fitness among your workers, you can demonstrate that your company is promoting green policies. After all, the more bikes there are on the roads, the fewer cars are needed, meaning emissions are reduced and congestion is decreased.
The benefits of bikes
Commenting on the growing use of bikes among commuters in the UK, Cycle Insurance recently listed some of the benefits associated with this form of travel.
It remarked: “There are many reasons that cycling is becoming increasingly popular, and many benefits owning a bike can bring. As well as saving money on fuel and parking as mentioned above, a bicycle is a lot cheaper to purchase than a car or a motorbike, and does not damage the environment when running, making it the greenest mode of transport other than walking.” The firm added: “With the costs of fuel always quick to rise and slow to fall, and parking spaces becoming rarer and rarer, being able to glide past motorists who are stuck in a traffic jam whilst on a bicycle in the cycle lane does have a certain appeal.”
Cycle Insurance also noted that people can save time by peddling to their offices. It said: “Riding a bike to work is faster than walking and often quicker (and far cheaper!) than driving or using public transport.”
Meanwhile, the organisation drew attention to the health benefits associated with frequent journeys by bike. About this, it stated: “There are… many health benefits to be had from a daily cycle ride, and the adrenalin and endorphins produced when exercising in this way are sure to create a good mood for work.”
