Our Cycle to Work Scheme with CycleSolutions is in its second year and has proved to be a great success. It runs really smoothly and if there are any issues, they’re dealt with swiftly and effectively. There has been an increase in cycling among staff and I think this is largely down to the Cycle to Work Scheme being in place. Many people are put off by the cost of a bike, but this just makes it that much more affordable. There was some apprehension about the scheme, but CycleSolutions ensured it was easy to set up and run and they’re quite knowledgeable about the legislation, so it’s good to know if I need to question anything, they’re just at the end of the phone.

Before we launched the scheme we contacted a number of water companies in other regions to gauge the likely uptake. Most said that they had achieved an average of 3% to 4%. Clearly our workforce really appreciated this benefit.
