Cycling is great, and it has officially been proven that cycling to work makes you feel happier. With it being announced last year that the average motorist wastes almost one week and spends around £1,000 while just sitting in traffic, what better motivation could there be than to bike to work. Here at See.Sense - we think everyone should have the option to bike to work whenever they can!
Being a cycle-friendly employer is really important to us (which might seem obvious!). So if you are an employer yourself, or if you’d like to put forward a few ideas to your place of work to help make biking to work even easier, then here are a few things we do here at See.Sense to help.
As well as the amazing health benefits that come with biking to work, the social side of cycling to work is great too! We usually plan to cycle into work on the same days as each other, and sometimes take the long route home to cycle with each other in a group. Also, of the best things about being a cycle-friendly employer is the tips and advice we give each other about our commutes and spins out on the bikes. We keep spare tubes, a track pump and emergency energy gels in the office, too! We are very lucky as sometimes cycling is actually a part of our jobs!
One thing we are going to do here at See.Sense is sign up to the Cycling UK Cycle Friendly Employer Accreditation Scheme - after attending the recent launch event in Belfast last week with Sustrans.
Is your employer cycle friendly, too?
