About Cycling Solutions Ireland

We are the only EU-licensed Cycle-Friendly accreditor in Ireland. Working with employers, universities, government bodies and other organisations, Cycling Solutions Ireland provides official European certification of cycle-friendliness in the workplace and helps employers to implement cycle-friendly infrastructure and cultural strategies across their businesses.

Cycling to work brings a myriad of benefits. Employees who cycle to work are healthier, more engaged, and less likely to look for a new role. Investment in cycling infrastructure is investment in your workforce and in the green economy for the future.

The CFE accreditation uses the EU model for cycling-friendliness best practice, covering everything from secure bike parking and bike maintenance to safety and team togetherness activities. Organisations that achieve CFE accreditation care about the employees and their carbon impact and are a great place to work.

How it works (3 steps)

Step 1: Complete your free online CFE self-evaluation here.

Step 2: Once we receive your CFE self-evaluation, our CFE auditors will review it and provide a summary report within 48 hours with your current score and recommendations. We will arrange a Zoom call with your lead or team to review your report and advise next steps.

Step 3: We will arrange an on-site audit where we will visit your workplace site and verify the cycling-related facilities and infrastructure that is in place. After the on-site audit, we will provide a final audit report detailing your current Cycle-Friendly Employer certification level (gold, silver or bronze) and, if applicable, will include recommendations and actions for you to improve your score.

Once you have been accredited, we will provide collateral (certificates, logos) which you can use in internal and external communications on your website, email footers, social media, and press releases.Cost:
