Cycle Stores Help Beat the Petrol Crisis
Thursday, 5 April 2012 | Admin
The recent petrol crisis, with the threat of strikes by delivery drivers and utter confusion in the government advice, has made us all aware of just how reliant we are on petrol and diesel. Huge queues quickly built up at garages and supermarkets at just the suggestion of a strike, making fuel shortages a self fulfilling reality as people started to worry about how they were going to get to work. But it doesn’t have to be that way.
AllPark have a range of cycle parking and lockable cycle stands that help employers to provide facilities for staff to cycle to work, avoiding the stress of fuel strikes altogether. With fuel prices constantly on the rise – currently up around 137p per litre for unleaded – cycling is becoming a more and more popular option, so it makes sense to encourage your staff to cycle in to work.
Not only will cycling protect your company from the uncertainty of fuel supplies, but it will also help your staff to get fitter and feel more awake and alert when they get to work. And the fitter your staff, the less sickness and absence you will have to deal with, making cycling to work a real win-win initiative.
Whatever the layout of your workplace, AllPark have outdoor bike storage facilities to suit, from simple ‘toast rack’ style cycle stands, to fully secure, lockable cycle cages. We can even help with cycle parking in confined spaces, with vertical cycle stands that saves space while still protecting and securing your bikes.
No one wants to queue at a petrol station all evening just to get to work the next day, so give your staff a simpler, healthier option by installing professional cycle parking facilities from AllPark for your staff.
