Cycling to work

Cycling brings huge benefits to your health and mental wellbeing, by providing regular physical activity without having the additional time or expense of attending a gym.

A bike is often a one off purchase, with costs of around £100 for the cheapest new or second hand bikes, up to a range of thousands of pounds for the experienced and professional cyclist options.

UHB has a Cycling to Work Scheme partner, Cycle Solutions, so that staff can purchase a bike and all the safety gear and clothing needed, at big discounts via salary sacrifice, making it all the more affordable. Also, cyclists don't pay to park at University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust (UHB).
