Ride your way to becoming a Cycle Friendly Employer
(We are now closed to new applications)
Throughout the pandemic, cycling has been a favoured mode of travel, helping key workers to commute safely, a pastime for the furloughed or has offered a break away from working at home.
Cycling both nationally and locally has seen a huge increase in usage, with increases of up to 60% in some parts of Milton Keynes recorded.
To maintain this, we want to encourage MK businesses to become Cycle Friendly Employers by enabling their staff to commute by bike and become local ambassadors for cycling across the city.
By providing a place for staff to park their bikes, safely and securely, can influence someone’s decision to cycle in the first place and affects the chances of a bike being stolen or damaged.
The importance of, secure, well-designed, high quality and convenient cycle parking at your workplace should never be under-estimated.
We don’t want you to stop there though; we want to work with you to introduce and promote more initiatives to encourage and enable more people to travel to work actively. We can do this by supporting you to develop a travel plan through the online platform Modeshift STARS. The STARS business scheme recognises organisations that show excellence in supporting cycling and other forms of sustainable and active travel.
