South Dublin County Council supports all staff to participate in the Cycle to Work Scheme, which aims to encourage people to cycle to and from work. Under the scheme an employer can pay for a new bicycle (including bicycle accessories) and the employee then repays the cost in regular instalments from their gross salary.

Not only is cycling good for the climate and the environment but it has been proven that cycling can enhance your fitness level and well-being, easing feelings of stress, depression and anxiety.

Since 2017, 226 staff members have signed up for the Scheme. Promotional events for the scheme are held throughout the year including during Bike Week.
