It's estimated that half of all car journeys are less than five miles, whilst only 3% of employees cycle to work
(Vocus) June 8, 2010
The Cycle to Work Guarantee scheme is an initiative aimed at encouraging employers to provide bike storage and the other facilities needed to persuade more people to cycle to work. In response, storage specialist Action Storage has announced details of how its range of cycle racks, cycle shelters and lockers can enable employers to join the Cycle to Work Guarantee scheme.
Action Storage’s wide range includes pillar bike racks, space saving bike lockers and roofed bike shelters. In particular, its lockable cycle compound can securely store up to 80 bikes and is covered with Perspex cladding to protect them from the rain.
Along with bike shelters, Action Storage supplies a variety of lockers for storing lights, helmets and waterproof clothing. This includes the eXtreme® plastic locker, which can be stacked outdoors without risk of rusting and is tough enough to withstand break in attempts from a claw hammer. Action Storage also supplies changing room lockers so that cyclists can get changed and hang their waterproofs to dry during the day.
“It’s estimated that half of all car journeys are less than five miles, whilst only 3% of employees cycle to work,” said Action Storage MD Tom Brialey, “Cycling can improve your health, alertness and productivity, as well as reduce pollution and traffic congestion. It’s no wonder the Government wants to start a ‘Cycling Revolution’, and with our range of secure cycle shelters and weatherproof lockers we aim to help.”
The Cycle to Work Guarantee scheme is just one of a series of initiatives aimed at encouraging more people to start cycling. Over 70 organisations have joined the Cycle to Work scheme, including universities and colleges, NHS hospitals and private sector companies, such as BSkyB, Kellogg’s and Glaxo Smith-Kline. Many more are expected to join as awareness on the benefits to employers of a healthier, more alert and more productive workforce spreads.
Details of Action Storage’s range of cycle racks, cycle shelters and changing room lockers can be found on its website. All orders placed online receive a 5% discount, where you can also register for email updates on Action Storage’s latest special offers and request a free catalogue.
