Cash incentive to firms' cyclists

Firms in Cambridgeshire are being offered cash incentives to encourage their employees to cycle to work.

More than 6,000 is available to be spent on facilities such as cycle stands and shelters.

The scheme is part of the Travel for Work Partnership (TfW) Take A Stand scheme, funded by the county council's Local Transport Plan

Firms have until 30 June to bid for cash. In the last round, 8,000 in handouts was made to seven companies.

Lindsey Rushmore, from TfW, said: "The scheme advises companies on quality cycle stands that cyclists want to use, thereby encouraging them to cycle more often."
