Birmingham is beginning to see a significant change to how we move in to, and around the city. With the introduction of the cities “Clean Air Zone” in July 2020, changes to infrastructure such as the metro extension and proposed taxation of company parking spaces, employers are beginning to consider alternatives. Gorilla Coffee Café works with employers across the city of Birmingham to help encourage employees to ditch the car and to consider cycling as an alternative not just to commute but also to team build and to create new facets of their business. Our client’s priorities might be different, but all have cycling at the heart.

Incorporating physical activity into our everyday lives can help to lessen the risk of obesity, health conditions such as coronary heart disease and Type 2 Diabetes. Evidence exists that points to having a healthy and active workforce can lead to lower rates of absence, improve productivity, and can assist in the management of stress and anxiety. Employers are increasingly seeing recreational cycling and commuting via bicycle as low-cost solutions to supporting their staff to be more active. The Gorilla Team have a proven track record of offering a range of consultancy services to help get staff more active. These include workplace assessments, ride leader training, route planning, on-site bicycle maintenance, led rides, training workshops and team building activities.

Some partners use our team to help them to deliver innovative and engaging business development opportunities via our cycling-focused networking events. Interested in inviting your clients to discuss business whilst enjoying a cycle ride? Our experienced, engaging and insured ride leaders are available to deliver the event from start to finish. This can be hosted at a venue of your choice or, even better, from our HQ in Kings Heath where riders can be welcomed back to hot food, drinks and even a cold beer!
