RIDE TO WORK BY BIKE

This is a community-led, not-for-profit project, encouraging
businesses to get on their bikes!
The 18-month project will target 12 different workplaces within Bath. Each organisation will be loaned – for free – bicycles for 10 employees who currently drive to work (about 6 miles or under), for a period of 6 weeks. Comprehensive support will be given to help participants fully experience the convenience and benefits of cycling to work, and maximise the chances of them making the switch permanent.
