Cycle to Work

Cycle to Work Scheme

This scheme promotes cycling by Council employees when travelling to and from work.   Employees can purchase cycle to work packs from selected suppliers by agreeing to forego part of their salary to cover the cost of the pack. 

The Council, by introducing schemes such as this, is promoting the use of alternative methods of travel to and from work which provide the following benefits: 

it promotes the use of other forms of transport to work
it encourages a healthier lifestyle for its employees
it reduces the number of vehicles on the road network
