During November we visited One Vision Housing’s Offices at Atlantic House, to provide a FREE bicycle health check and service for any employees bikes. The day had been arranged in conjunction with their Health Promotion Officer as a means of rewarding the staff who regularly cycle to work and to encourage those employees who don’t commute by bike to get them checked over and have any repairs or servicing carried out, enabling them to have the option to cycle to work in the future. We also provided maps, leaflets and cycling information we have produced, detailing all of the practical advice, guidance and assistance we can offer to employees. Finally we held a prize draw for all employees who either had a bike serviced or spoke to us about further information around cycling/walking/bus routes.

During the three hours that we attended we managed to service 9 bikes; work carried out included tuning gears, replacing brake blocks, fitting new pedals, inner tube replacement, fitting new brake/gear inner and outer cables and bicycle M checks.

If you would like the Active Travel Team to visit your Sefton Workplace to either carry out a Dr Bike, provide information and Advice around Sustainable Travel options or to deliver a Health and Wellbeing session, then please contact the team to book a day or simply for more information.
