Help your staff cycle or walk to work

Get staff started with cycling

Cycling can help to reduce absence and increase productivity in your organisation. It can also help your organisation meet environmental targets. We’ve got all you need to help those new, considering or returning to cycling after a long time. 

Get staff started with walking and wheeling

Just a 20 minute walk or wheel can have fantastic health benefits, helping to stave off chronic conditions like heart disease, certain cancers and diabetes. Living Streets' Walking Works is a programme for embedding the culture of walking into workplaces.

How you can support staff to get around

Interested in corporate sustainability and prioritising staff wellbeing?

West Midlands Cycle Hire bikes are an environmentally and commuter-friendly way to get around the region. The bikes are well integrated into wider public transport links. Offering minutes as a reward or incentive to staff will help boost their wellbeing while setting your organisation apart for being eco-conscious.

There are safe walk, wheel and cycle routes across the West Midlands as part of the Starley Network. Your organisation can also get free travel planning advice with Modeshift.
