WORKERS at Oxford Business Park were encouraged to get into the saddle as part of a national cycling event yesterday.
Oxford East MP Andrew Smith visited the business park in John Smith Drive to mark national cycle to work day.
Pure Offices, which manages the business park, organised a sustainable transport event to encourage people to make the switch from car to bike.
The company provides four bicycles as part of a bike-share scheme, a secure cycle store, showers, a towel service and lockers for employees at the business park to use.
Mr Smith said: “Cycling is good for your health, your wallet and the planet.
“As a keen cyclist, I have experience of cycling around Oxford.
“I hope today’s roadshow at the business park and national cycle to work festivities encourage even more people on to their bikes here in Oxford.”
