Employers urged to get on their bikes
A new employer cycle accreditation scheme has been set up in to alleviate traffic congestion and boost productivity.
Concentrix and Allstate NI are among the organisations to have already signed up to the European Cycle-Friendly Employer Accreditation Scheme. They will receive benefits including assistance to install bike parking and showers.
Sustrans, the charity delivering the scheme, said that people who cycle to work take nearly 7,000 cars off the road in Northern Ireland. It added that employees who commute by bike take one day less off per year than those who do not.
