How to do it
Influencing more employees to cycle to work is great for business and a few simple steps can make all the difference - and 'businesscycle' is here to guide you step by step.
The first thing to do is to sign up and join the 'businesscycle' network. Sign up is easy – simply complete the sign up form and press submit. You will then be part of our network and will be kept up to date with what other companies are doing to increase cycling and also what is happening in the world of work-related cycling nationally.
Secondly, just go through the site page by page to access all the resources you will need to help make cycling a viable travel option - and indeed an option of choice.
Thirdly, contact us if something is not clear or you simply need advice. We should know the answer but if we don't we'll know exactly who does.
Whilst we would encourage businesses to offer cycle purchase to employees through the Cycle to Work Scheme it is not a pre-requisite of joining the network. We are aware that it can be challening for some organisations though we are endeavouring, with others, to ensure this is as viable as possible and appropriate to the needs of businesses.

Although lagging behind some Northern European countries, the UK
is displaying a level of positive activities across the private and public
sector that are essential precursors to stimulating both a greater degree
of cycling amongst existing cyclists, and in encouraging new riders.
