Charles Russell is a leading City of London law firm and has been providing legal services from the City of London for over 250 years. With over 600 staff in 6 offices, Christopher Page, the Senior Partner explained why they back the new scheme:
‘We have a large number of employees cycling to the office every day. Put simply, we are fans of the bicycle. We participate in the Bike to Work scheme. We organise and participate in charity bike rides. You’ll find us going to meetings on Barclays bikes and Bromptons. We value the personal and business benefits of cycling.
‘We have invested in facilities to make cycling easy for our employees and secure for their bikes. But we know from speaking to our employees that more of them would cycle to work if they felt it were safer to do so, particularly during rush hour. We would encourage all to support the north-south and east-west cycle routes that have been proposed by Transport for London.’
