Posted on October 30, 2009

In his launch of a new and improved scheme, Lord Adonis wants large employers to improve on the 3% of staff that currently journey to work by bicycle, by removing the other barriers in their way.

In addition to the current scheme for loans, he hopes that installation of services such as bike repair and enhanced facilities will lead to a threefold increase in people commuting by bike.
