TfL's 2012th free cycle space installed at Greenwich and Bexley Community Hospice
TRANSPORT for London's 2012th free cycle space has been installed ahead of the Olympics at Greenwich and Bexley Community Hospice.
Organisations across the capital are taking advantage of TfL's Cycle Stands for Employers offer before the Games begin.
Consultant at the hospice, Brendan O'Neill, said: "The health benefits of cycling to work are many.
"The non impact cardiovascular workout, is a healthy way to wake up in the morning and de-stress after a day at work, the knowledge that you are not polluting the environment, the freedom from MOTs, waiting at petrol pumps and finding a better car insurance deal plus the joy of being in the open air.
"Knowing my bike is safely secured to a stand gives me added peace of mind."
Director of planning for TfL surface transport, Ben Plowden, said: "I would like to encourage all employers to take advantage of the free cycle stands offer.
"Cycling in London is quick, easy and extremely good for your health.
"By cycling to work people are choosing one of the most reliable, greenest and cheapest ways of getting round the city, made all the more convenient with these free cycle stands."
