Cycling To Work Made Easy In Havant Created on 10/07/2012 14:54:00
With 6 million regular cycle users in Britain and an estimated 10% of people cycling to work, the Langstone Technology Park, which offers office space in Havant, near Portsmouth, is all too aware of the need to provide support and help for those who choose this greenest and healthiest of travel options:
- This June, for example, Langstone actively supported National Bike Week the UK’s largest mass participation cycling event, with events and offers to encourage as many onsite employees as possible to take to the saddle. These included free security (Hampshire Police) tagging for bikes, free healthy breakfast pots from its ‘Eat at the Park’ (Aramark) restaurant and bike demonstrations and offers aimed at those looking to start or improve their cycling.
- To ensure a smooth ride to work each day requires regular servicing of your bike; so Langstone also operates a workplace bike service scheme for all employees based there.
This scheme, run in conjunction with Stowaway Bikes, provides those cycling to work at any of the businesses located in their office space in Havant, with a hassle free way to keep themselves on the road.
- This free scheme enables cyclists to securely book and pay for a service for their bikes at a time to suit them with the bikes being collected and returned direct to the workplace at the end of the day.
- As well as a dedicated cycle area with showers, lockers and dry room, Langstone Technology Park also runs an outdoor fitness & running club and is one of the only office complexes in Havant to have its own 24/7 gym and fitness centre.
On the southeast edge of Hampshire, lying between the South Downs and the sea, Havant is a haven for cyclists with the lowlands being fantastically easy for beginners. This makes Langstone Technology Park a healthy option for those looking for offices for lease in the Portsmouth area. Nearby attractions also include: the scenic coastal walks and cycle paths of Hayling Island; as well as the Solent Way, the New Forest, the historic market town of Arundel and the Isle of Wight; plus several beaches and marinas situated in the surrounding area.
