Cycling Friendly Employers
Cycling Scotland’s Cycling Friendly Employer Award scheme provides a framework, resources and one-to-one support to increase staff cycling rates. It also rewards those organisations working hard to encourage workplace cycling.https://www.cycling.scot/what-we-do/cycling-friendly/employer
Once registered as working towards the award employers can apply for funding of up to £25,000 for facilities, such as showers or bike racks, that encourage staff to travel by bike.
Greener Kirkcaldy’s assessors can help employers in Fife through this process.
Cycling has many benefits. Commuting by bike helps tackle the climate emergency by replacing short car journeys. It also supports mental and physical health.
The Scottish Government is aiming to reduce car kilometres by 20% by 2030. Fife Council estimates that half of all journeys in Fife could be cycled within 15 minutes.
