Businesses pedalling and walking for a greener West of England
Aardman Animations, Bath’s Royal United Hospital and Lost Horizon Coffee are helping to get more people walking and pedalling to work by sharing their experiences in a new guide launched by the West of England Combined Authority, led by Metro Mayor Dan Norris.
Top tips in the guide include accessing grants for installing bike racks or showers, getting advice on planning journeys, and how to set up a cycle to work scheme.
The Mayor recently visited Kit Nisbet at Lost Horizon Coffee who is featured in the guide. He was able to buy an e-bike using a grant and now is using it to deliver his coffee to happy customers while growing his business sustainably.
Tony Prescott, Head of Estates at Aardman Animations is involved in supporting as many employees as possible to walk or cycle to work.
Cris Fletcher, Sustainable Travel Officer at Royal United Hospitals Bath has first-hand experience of the health and well-being benefits of walking and cycling for staff.
