Raising your heart rate through exercise just 5 times per week means you are 50% less
likely to suffer from a stroke, heart disease or type 2 diabetes.

Cycling is the third most popular recreational activity in the UK. An estimated 3.1 million
people ride a bicycle each month 1. It's a low impact exercise, meaning it's easier on your
joints than running or other high-impact aerobic activities. But it still helps you get into shape.

Testimonials

Start of Quote SpeechmarkWe used Cycle Solutions for the first time this year (2015). We changed from an alternative provider and transition/set up was relatively simple. One of the big benefits of using Cycle Solutions from an administration point of view is that they provide their own marketing materials, run roadshows and completely manage the end of scheme process. Cycle Solutions operate their own online shop with the opportunity to include local bike shops if required. The vast majority of staff made a point of feeding back to HR how pleased they were with their bikes! End of Quote Speechmark

Start of Quote SpeechmarkOur first Cycle to Work scheme with Cycle Solutions was a success from start to finish, the manner in which they managed the whole project for South Central Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust, was run very efficiently and professionally and was customer service at its best. From the start the product range was large. Help in promoting the project to all staff (including Road Shows) was highly professional, and they made sure that the procedures put in place for staff engagement to purchase were accessible online and easily understandable. We would have no hesitation in using this company again for further Cycle to Work schemes. End of Quote Speechmark
