ABSTRACT
The leaflet "Cycling Works!" from the National Cycling Forum that tells employers about the benefits of helping their staff to use the bicycle in going to work is the main focus of this article. It explains how businesses can work with their local authority to develop successful cycling schemes. A growing number of employers are recognizing that increased cycle commuting can help tackle transport and parking problems while providing employees with greater travel choice and an opportunity to get fit. The leaflet gives examples of other employers that have encouraged cycling, including Milton Park. The February 2001 leaflet features government policy of Great Britain which supports cycling.
