Turning Point

Keep On Trekking

By Heather Page

Trudy E. Bell, author of The Essential Bicycle Commuter (Ragged Mountain Press), offers the following tips for quickly getting an office bicycle program up and, er, pedaling:

  • Provide bicycle racks or a safe place to store bikes.
  • Offer a place to shower at work (or at least a changing room with a curtain and sink).
  • Encourage employees to wear helmets.
  • Carry your work clothes in a garment bag, or bring a week's worth of clothes on a day you don't bike to work.
  • Bike to work yourself and offer employees incentives such as free bicycle helmets.
