Summit Events is a leading events management company based in Victoria. The team have been based in London for 7 years. Coleen Chesters, Director at Summit Events explained their support:
‘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, want to promote active lifestyles for all employees and 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.
Having seen the TfL plans and the traffic modelling for two new segregated routes through the heart of the city, we strongly support them.
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 we can 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.’
