The Department provides extensive cycle storage, changing and wash facilities at several of its buildings, including its main office site at 1 Victoria Street.

There is also a cycle to work scheme which enables individuals to buy a bike and spread the cost by paying instalments directly from their salary. For the year 2018 there were 92 members of the cycle to work scheme and for 2019 Jan – to date there are currently 337 members. We do not hold data before this time because of a change in payroll system.
