Advantages of Certification

Good for Your Image

Bicycle-friendly employers are more attractive to employees. Furthermore, bicycle friendliness promotes employee wellness and team spirit.

Good for Health

Bicycle-friendly measures increase the number of employees on the bike, thus promoting exercise. In addition, employees who come to work by bike have a third fewer sick days. They are happier, more balanced and more productive.

Good for Our Environment

Cycling is sustainable. Bicycle-friendly measures contribute to environmental preservation, and are an essential part of sustainable mobility management.

Good for Your Budget

Bicycle-friendly employers save money. Bicycle parking facilities take up less space than car parking spaces, and infrastructure costs are lower, even if all expenses for an adequate cycling infrastructure are taken into account.

Process in 3 Steps to Certification

♥︎ Self-Evaluation

You check online whether your company has enough points for a positive on-site audit.

♥︎ Register for the audit

If the self-test shows that it makes sense to be certified, register for the audit. An CFE auditor will check your bike-friendly measures on site and prepare a report.

♥︎ Certification

If the outcome is positive, you will receive the “Bicycle-friendly employer” seal in bronze, silver or gold. The certification is valid for 3 years.

Trusted Partners

As part of the Employer Membership package, you are eligible for a range of extra services and support through our carefully selected panel of trusted partners.

Employees book online for their bike service and our qualified bike mechanics set up a pop-up workshop in your cycle parking area to offer same-day bicycle safety checks, tune ups, servicing and repairs. It’s simple… hand your bike over in the morning and it will be ready for your commute home!

The Bike Shop will design and build the perfect commuter bike for each participating employee. Twice-yearly bike service included as standard.

Fleet rotated every three years.

A 20% discount applies to all orders of 10+ cyclists. Free road and electric bike hire available to Cycle Friendly Employers.
