The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic and the demands of social distancing have significantly increased the popularity of cycling. As lockdown has begun to ease, there has been an increase in the use of public transport, as people have started using it to get to work.
There is a range of reasons why cycling is and remains a year-round benefit, however there are also many reasons specifically why cycling can help during the coronavirus pandemic.
Therefore, we have been finding at Busy Bees Benefits that our cycle2work scheme both on our benefits platform and as a stand-alone scheme, is proving to be increasingly popular with employers and their staff. Businesses that sign-up for the scheme can support their employees in helping them to keep socially distanced when travelling to and from work and help safeguard them against the risk of catching COVID-19 by avoiding the use of public transport.
