Active travel & employers

Did you know that we work with employers?

We work with a number of employers in Falkirk through our Employer Engagement programme to support them on the path to becoming more cycling and walking friendly.

The programme includes:

  • Evaluating the current levels of active travel at the workplace and identifying any barriers that make it harder for employees to choose active travel
  • Identifying funding opportunities for cycling facilities and staff training
  • Supporting the application process for Cycling Scotland’s Cycle Friendly Employer Award
  • Scheduling walking and cycling events and competitions including Dr Bike sessions, pop-up Hubs, led walks/rides, route planning and much more.

We have worked with many employers in Falkirk including NHS Forth Valley Royal Hospital, Falkirk Council, Forth Valley College and the Department of Work & Pensions. Our aim is to make Falkirk the gold standard of active travel friendly towns and we believe employers play a key role in that.

If you'd like to find out more about our Employer Engagement Programme, please get in touch by email or phone, or pop into the Hub for a chat.


Do you want to commute to work by bike but don't have a bike or need a better bike?

Cyclescheme is an employee benefit that saves you 25-39% on a bike and accessories. You pay nothing upfront and the payments are taken tax efficiently from your salary by your employer.

The Big Count

Cycling Scotland's Big Count asks people, twice a year, to visit the bike parking at their workplace and count the number of bikes there that day.
