Parking is expensive. Traffic comes to a near standstill at rush hour. Public transport is crowded and delayed.
This is your opportunity to promote cycling among your workforce, rewarding them for their work and achieving great PR, environmental and social impact gains at the same time.
That Holywood Bike Thing offers on-site workshops for your staff on how to get their own and their families’ bikes in great working order.
Together we can promote:
Better physical and mental health
Staff satisfaction and retention
Lower your environmental impact
Offer a highly valued yet low cost benefit to staff
Reduce parking and travel costs
Improve networking and cross-departmental working
Most commuting journeys into Belfast are less than five miles, just half an hour by bike. In many cases, that’s likely to be equal to or even quicker than commuting by car, train or bus at rush hour.
By cycling, staff will arrive at work feeling better about themselves, their work, their physical and mental health. And wide awake, ready for the day.
- I offer the opportunity to learn the basics of bike repair and maintenance during your workforce’s lunch hour, at no cost to them.
- With you, we can enable your staff to have their bikes serviced and repaired on-site, for free, while they work.

That Holywood Bike Thing offers value for money bike repairs and bike maintenance, as well as workshops on safe cycling and cycle fixing. I have 15 years experience as a regular cyclist repairing and maintaining my own bikes, and nearly four years as a bike mechanic working with the bicycle re:cycle project in east Belfast and from my own workshop. I am a qualified Cytech Technician, the recognised certificate for bike mechanics by the Association of Cycle Traders. I am also a certified First Aider, and have Access NI clearance.
