How it Helps
A reward is something that everyone enjoys! Bicycling incentives may go a long way toward persuading reluctant riders to get on their bikes. Employers can create an incentive scheme for your staff that compensates them for the number of miles they ride or the number of days they bike to work each week. Incentives might be monetary, such as giving workers a modest payment for each day they ride their bikes to work, or they could be in the form of bicycle and bike gear subsidies.3
Employees face several challenges, including distance and space limits. Most workers may be deterred if a cycling culture is developed, owing to the great distance between their homes and offices. Additional facilities, like showers and locker rooms, should be easily accessible in this scenario since they may be advantageous to workers.
It’s important to educate individuals about the benefits of riding and how it may improve their health. It’s reasonable that some people are indifferent because they have not ridden a bicycle since childhood, or maybe they never learned at all. In such circumstances, it is critical to teach them by bringing in local cycling instructors, most likely during lunchtime or nighttime seminars; however, this should be available to everyone who desires to participate rather than made mandatory.3
