Transport for London’s (TfL’s) initiative aims to encourage businesses to provide cycle parking for their employees by supplying a variety of free cycle parking stands. This promotes not only cycling, but increases bicycle security too.
This scheme replaces the ‘Take a Stand’ scheme and will provide a greater range of cycle parking for your organisation.
TFL will supply your business with up to 20 free cycle stands (40 bicycle spaces) based on the number of employees at your site. This excludes costs and arrangements for installation.
To qualify, you must have a minimum of five employees at your site, sign up to the free Cycle to Work Guarantee scheme www.cycletoworkguarantee.org.uk and provide photographic evidence that the stands have been installed within three months of delivery.
The aim is to build on the success of the Take a Stand scheme. More than 250 businesses have benefited from the free stands, improving the active travel options for their staff. If you have any queries, or would like to discuss cycle parking for your business, please contact the Business Engagement team.
Cyclehoop will provide a range of cycle stands to TfL – including Sheffield stands, toast racks and vertical cycle parking. Stands are available on a first come, first served basis, so get your order in early to ensure you get your stands.
Take advantage of this free offer and your business will show its commitment by providing the facilities and incentives to help your workforce become healthier, greener and more productive. Getting your workplace cycle-friendly is a great way to get your employees or colleagues fitter, happier and more productive. Not only does better fitness mean fewer sick days and better all-round health, but exercise such as cycling reduces stress too.
