1 Notes for Champions and Assessors This guide has been developed to help you complete the self-assessment form and check how cycle friendly your organisation is. It may also be helpful to make comments on the assessment form in the space provided which will help you complete the Action Plan. Please note which items are essential for attainment of the award and which are desirable when marking points. All essential items must be achieved to gain the award. Desirable items which your organisation does not currently meet can be used as ideas for future improvement. INFRASTRUCTURE - ON-SITE 1. Secure cycle parking for pupils and staff Appropriate cycle parking refers to a rack such as the Sheffield Rack which fully supports the bike (pictured) and allows for it to be securely attached in a number of areas such as the wheels and the frame. Rubber or plastic coated stands are even better as they further protect the bike. A less appropriate type of cycle parking stand is one which is only secured by the wheel, the toaster or wheel bender type rack. This can cause damage to the bike if it is knocked over i.e. buckled wheels. For comprehensive guidance on key elements of cycle parking provision visit the Sustrans website at the following link: Transport for London also have some useful advice on their website. Visit the following link and open the Cycle Parking Guidance document: Additionally, the location of the cycle parking is also an important point to consider. The following criteria is important: Visible, safe and convenient e.g. at the front entrance to the building Sufficient maneuvering space for the cyclist, they may also need space for basic maintenance if no other facility is available for this. A smooth, level surface. Easy access without conflict with cars, pedestrians, vending machines or rubbish bin. Further guidance on capacity planning and best practice is available on request from Cycling Scotland. Weather protection should be provided where possible in the form of a canopy, locker or ideally internal parking which is easily accessible. The location of the parking should be well lit and secure whether in or outdoors. Ideally, the area should be locked and therefore have limited access. Security/CCTV cameras should be provided where appropriate. Sufficient provision will be indicated by observing whether the existing parking provision is over or under prescribed. Advertisement of the facility may be a recommendation if parking is deemed to have low usage. If there is a demand for spaces it can be recommended that more are installed. If on street cycle parking is required then it will be necessary to contact the local authority to provide this, contact the designated Cycling Officer who will offer guidance. If the cycle parking is within the organisations property then they are responsible for this. In order to assess whether the cycle parking meets or exceeds the local authority requirements this information can be obtained from the Local Authority Cycling Officer and if not already known should be added to the recommendations. Scottish Charity Number SC Sheffield rack Toaster or wheel bender type rack 1

2 2. Cycle Parking for visitors Is cycle parking easily accessible to visitors? Do they have to arrange access before their visit and are cycle directions readily available e.g. by letter, phone or website. The guide on Active Travel How to produce active travel directions for your visitors and staff has an easy to use template to create active travel directions for your organisation. Search for the title at: Is this provision safe in terms of lighting, security and conveniently located? 3. Changing facilities available If possible, check the changing room and look for a cleaning/service checklist. Seating should be adequate for the number of users. Are the changing rooms sufficient for the number of users? May be useful to check the Staff Travel Survey to see if demand is highlighted for more shower or changing facilities 4. Showers Available Ideally showers are an essential item and should be provided wherever possible. However Cycling Scotland recognise that if showers are not already provided it may take time and money to have this facility installed. Therefore, if showers are not provided this should be included in the recommendations. It should be noted that some staff may be deterred from cycling to work if showers are not available and every effort should be made to achieve this criteria. If no showers are available deduct 2 points from the overall total for this section i.e. Infrastructure. Please note that points can be gained back in section 6a through the implementation of other facilities e.g. designated area for maintenance with tool kit. A visual check should be sufficient to determine if the shower provision is proportionate. 5. Lockers/storage space available Not an essential item. As above, a visual check should be sufficient. 6. Site safe convenient Check the routes within the site are safe and free from obstruction. Check if the organisation has created directions for visitors and staff. This should be included in the recommendations if not in place. Does the organisation have a Travel Plan in place? Contact the following for information and advice on travel planning for your organisation: Energy Saving Trust Sustrans 6a. Other facilities Maximum of 6 further facilities, 1 point each. 2
