"Changing habits and behaviour is a notoriously difficult nut to crack. The workplace cycle challenge targets the right people and genuinely encourages behavioural change in a fun and accessible way." - John Nicklin, Senior Pollution Officer, Lewes District Council

"I can tell who’s cycled to work because they walk into work looking fresher, calmer and happier."

"Every week I talk to staff who have participated in the scheme and it's clear that it has had a really positive impact on the lives of many who work here."

"I would recommend cycling to everyone, it’s great to see how it has taken off in the office."

"Southampton University has operated a cycle to work scheme since 2010. Initially we used a different provider (Halfords), but switched to Cyclescheme in 2011 as it offered a much wider range of bikes."

"Employees have found this hugely beneficial and have really enjoyed it."
