Welcome to the State Street Scotbug cycle forum.....

As well as recently achieving the ‘Bronze Healthy Working Lives’ award, State Street is committed to sustainable , healthy travel and as such is in the process of being assessed for the ‘Cycle Friendly Employer’ award.

This forum is to encourage the knowledge and sharing of ideas and motivation across our experienced and novice riders within the State Street Edinburgh office. 

Why Cycle? - Indeed, cycling regularly to work (and, by extension, any other regular journeys) has been shown to be the most effective thing an individual can do to improve health and increase longevity, and this applies even to people who are already active in sport and other physical activities. It is believed that cycling at least twenty miles a week reduces the risk of heart disease to less than half that for non-cyclists who take part in no other exercise. During peak rush-hour traffic, a bicycle can be twice as fast as a car!

The Edinburgh office is located just off Crewe Toll roundabout which has access to some of Edinburgh’s excellent cycle paths allowing cyclists to avoid on road travel! As an employer State Street offer excellent cycle friendly facilities with recently upgraded shower rooms, drying room, external and basement cycle parking aswell as a fantastic staff restaurant which offers healthy eating accredited menu choices.
