Dust Off Your Bike

Dust Off Your Bike is our programme to get more people in Birmingham commuting by bike. 

There has never been a better time to start cycling in the city. 

Over the last few years there has been a massive investment in cycle infrastructure, including new, safer cycleways on the A34 and A38, as well as improved routes along our 100 miles of canals and our 571 parks & green spaces. 

The city also has big challenges to overcome such as congestion, air pollution and obesity. 

Cycling benefits include:

  • Improved health and well-being of employees.
  • Reduction in work absences and lateness.
  • Reduced congestion on the roads.
  • More people cycling to work safely with confidence.
  • Reduction in parking costs for the employer 
  • Reduction in air pollution.
  • Building the employers’ reputation as a ‘green’ business

 

We offer a menu of activities to businesses in Birmingham to get staff pedalling: 

Dr Bike / Route Finding / Cycling hints and tips

In these informal drop-in sessions, we ensure employees bikes are road-worthy with a service from Dr Bike; sit down with staff to work out the best routes for them to commute in to work; and give advice and information on getting cycling.  

Maintenance

Maintenance knowledge can help save money, keep bikes safe and ensure they are a pleasure to ride. We offer basic maintenance sessions for staff to ensure their bikes are kept in tip top condition. Sessions cover safety checks, cleaning advice, wheels, tyres and punctures. 

Led Ride / Cycling tuition

Our led group rides are the perfect way to build confidence, explore local cycle routes and build team cohesion. For those who are less confident on two-wheels, we can offer cycling tuition.
