Musselburgh Outdoor Education Centre has been presented with a Cycle Friendly Employer Award by Cycling Scotland in recognition of its efforts to support and encourage more staff to cycle.
The nationally-recognised award, which is delivered with funding from Transport Scotland and supported by Healthy Working Lives, recognises the efforts of Scotland’s employers to promote cycling as an accessible and convenient travel choice. It was presented to Keith Christie by Brian Salvona, Cycling Scotland tutor, in recognition of the outstanding level of commitment the centre has shown to encourage cycling among its staff.
Musselburgh Outdoor Education Centre implemented a range of measures to support staff cycling to, from and for work, including cycle parking, showers and promotional activities to achieve the award.
Councillor Michael Veitch, East Lothian’s Cabinet Spokesperson for Transport and Roads, said:
“East Lothian Council has been a long-term promoter of healthy, active travel. Regular exercise is key to a healthy life and we are delighted that our efforts to encourage this have attracted this award.”
Mark Kiehlmann, Cycling Scotland development officer, said:
“Working with Musselburgh Outdoor Education Centre has been a joy and I am delighted to award them Cycle Friendly Employer Award status. By implementing simple measures to support cycling in the workplace, the outdoor centre will have a healthy, happy and productive workforce.”
The Cycle Friendly Employer Award is open to all Scottish employers. Interested employers can register online by completing a short questionnaire at www.cycling.scot
