Digital Craftsmen, based in King’s Cross, back the Cycling Superhighway

dc-logo-featuredDigital Craftsmen Ltd is a hosting provider with offices in the heart of King’s Cross. The team manage internet services for companies large and small and have been based in London for over 12 years.

Managing Director Simon Wilcox explains why they support the two routes, one of which comes within 100 metres of their offices:

‘Like many businesses in London, a growing number of our employees cycle to work. An even larger proportion of our team would cycle to the office if they felt comfortable and safe on the roads.

‘We value their safety and we want to promote active lifestyles for all our employees. We support their freedom to choose how they get to work. We also note strong evidence that more cycling increases spending in local retail businesses and lowers air pollution levels.

‘The proposed north–south and east–west routes will help us attract and retain the employees our business needs to continue to thrive. They will also make London a more attractive city in which to build and run our business.

‘Crossrail for Bikes’ is, on balance, great for our business and for London. Please make sure these plans are delivered, without delay.’
