With commuting being a leading cause of stress from factors such as the misery of congested roads and overcrowded public transport, there is a heightened importance for employees to have a stress free commute and for employers to support this.
Over 400 riders shared their opinions via the survey. While ‘enjoyment’ topped reasons to ride to work (93%), 64% said ‘saving time’ was important whilst and 46% said they did it to ‘save money’.
There was clear consensus on what needs to be done by transport planners and local authorities to help riders. They ranged from more secure parking, improved road surfaces and lane widths to allow safe filtering, which is legal in the UK.
As many towns and cities around the UK introduce cycle lanes, there is a worrying trend toward the narrowing of normal traffic lanes, narrow lanes increase risk to riders whom are trying to filter, many respondents suggesting road planners should think again.
How would you commute if not by Motorcycle or Scooters?
