Severn Ride & Stride is here to help you get around Avonmouth, Severnside and the communities nearby

Making travel easy

Whether it’s by bike, on foot or using public transport, we are armed with information to help you find a quicker, cheaper, safer, healthier commute.

What we do

We work with businesses and individuals to find solutions to everyday travel problems and help create happier healthier journeys for everyone.

Why we do it

Reducing lone journeys by car in the area will lead to safer roads, a fitter, healthier, happier and more productive workforce, cleaner air and cost savings all round.

For people who live or work here

Why get involved?

Do you get fed up of being stuck in traffic? Finding a parking spot? Be part of the solution!

Riding a bus, bike or train, or striding out on foot can be more relaxing and reliable than driving. It could also save you money and help you get fit.

For businesses who are based here

How your colleagues get to work is important. Everyone driving separately can cause problems with parking, clog up the roads, delay business deliveries, and lead to a more isolated, stressed and unhealthy workforce.

Sustainable travel however can bring many benefits: reducing traffic problems, attracting and retaining staff and increasing the wellbeing, happiness and productivity of your staff every day. Promoting sustainable travel is a fantastic way to show you care about your colleagues, your area and your environment.

We’re here to help with:

  • Creating bespoke Travel Action Plans for your business
  • Postcode mapping and tailored advice
  • Signposting to travel related grants, services and initiatives
  • ‘Try before you buy’ bike sessions for your staff
  • Cycle confidence sessions
  • Active Travel breakfasts
  • Bike loans schemes
  • Workplace Champion training
  • HGV and cycle awareness raising
  • Active Steps – an intensive 8-10 week health programme for staff

Travel Action Plans

A Travel Action Plan is an easily digestible document detailing existing transport options, staff travel behaviour and identified motivators and barriers to active and sustainable travel. It also provides a step by step implementation plan to boost your productivity, profitability and competitiveness through the implementation of an action plan to encourage a reduction in single person car journeys.

Please get in touch if you are interested in receiving support in your business.
