Commuters get on their bike to Chiswick Park

Chiswick Park, the large business community in West London is taking part in the one-million cycle commuter challenge with Dame Sarah Storey.

Enjoy-Work, Chiswick Park’s estate management company is joining the organisers of Cycle to Work Day, Cyclescheme, and encouraging its 8,000 guests (tenants) to pledge to Cycle to Work on Thursday 12 September 2013.

Throughout the day a team from Ultimate Bikes will be running one of their monthly bike servicing sessions, and during lunchtime guests can sign up for a free bike maintenance workshop which will go through basic and routine maintenance. Guests will learn how to do rudimentary brake and gear adjustments, as well as covering other areas such as replacing and fixing tyres and chains.

Chiswick Park has a keen cycling community, recently launching a club for bike enthusiasts. Every Thursday, before work, club members take part in a group cycle around Richmond Park. Earlier this year Enjoy-Work partnered with Bikeability to deliver local guided cycle tours and on-road training to help build up the confidence of those who were nervous to cycle on London’s roads. Everybody also had the chance to sit behind the wheel of an HGV to experience exactly what the driver can see.

Gemma McNeilis, CSR Manager for Enjoy-Work said:
“At Enjoy-Work we want to support employees to be fit and active and make it as easy as possible for our guests to get on their bike. For those who don’t have their own bike we have a fleet of distinctive yellow cycles which guests can borrow for free. We’re always looking for ways to step our plans up a gear!”
