What We Do

Here at City Connect, we want to help businesses to welcome people who travel to work by bike. We Offer:

  • Free consultation, information and advice including a visit to your site

  • Recommendations on what measures your business can take to support and encourage people to cycle

  • Bike Friendly Business accreditation acknowledging when you have achieved a good standard of facilities and support

  • A Bike Friendly Business grant up to £5,000 to improve cycle facilities at your site or offer measures that encourage travelling to work by bike

Who can get a grant?

Any business or employer can apply for a grant from CityConnect. Businesses must enrol on the project and describe what cycle facilities they have and what they already do to encourage cycling, This is a short and simple process.

What can the grant be used for?

Businesses have already used the grants for many different measures, including:

  • Improved cycle parking

  • Shower, changing and drying facilities

  • Cycle training for staff to increase confidence and skills for cycling on roads

  • Pool bikes (including electric bikes)

  • On site ‘Dr Bike’ maintenance sessions

  • Bike maintenance training for staff
