SBN has been working on workplace cycling since way back. For the last two years this work has focused around promotion of the Aotearoa Bike Challenge. We assist businesses with inspiration and information to support their people to use bikes to commute to work and between meetings.
At the same time we have been working with NZTA to put together a concise but comprehensive online guide to workplace cycling. It covers the why and how of getting your people onto bikes. It provides resources and inspiration to get you started.
Phil Jones is project lead for SBN. He said: “We are very pleased and proud to see this live, and hope it will be useful to businesses and organisations across the country.
“The congestion pressure in our cities continues to build. But new cycle lanes are springing up all over. Now is the perfect time to switch to travelling by bicycle wherever possible. Studies show your people will be fitter and more alert, and you will be helping to improve your surroundings for everyone. It should be part of any company’s social responsibility and human resources planning to integrate cycling wherever possible.”
We would love you to check it out and let us know what they think. We would like it even more if you get in touch to tell us how you used the guide to make changes. Get in touch with firstname.lastname@example.org or use the feedback form on the online guide.
