Cycle Training For Your Workforce

Over the years there has been a huge growth in large industries wanting to provide an opportunity to provide cycle training for their workforce. Adult bikeability training has been designed to deliver this invaluable training. It offers a safer, cleaner, and more sustainable form of travel.

We are the only Cumbrian cycle training company that has the Department of Transport, National Standards Bikeability Accreditation. This allows us to train and qualify staff to the current National Standards. All the training is in line with the current  Health and Safety Guidelines.

Where Does Training Take Place?

Adult cycle training is offered both off and on-site to help identify hazards and highway issues. We can then offer the strategies and techniques required to deal with these issues. This makes your employee’s journeys to and from work as safe as possible.

Cyclewise has worked with Sellafield Nuclear, the largest Cumbrian employer, over the last 6 years. They now have an active 10% of the workforce regularly riding onto the site. That is around 1000 cyclists that with Cyclewise training are helping Sellafield achieve less pollution, sustainable travel solutions, and a healthier workforce. In 2015 Sellafield became England’s Cycling Employer Of The Year.
