2 wheels are better than 4! 

Arval showcase a ‘greener’ way to travel
Car fleet giant Arval, based on Windmill Hill Business Park, have been taking advantage of the good weather today, by teaming up with the government funded ‘bE SMART’ initiative to showcase a range of electric bikes and scooters.  
The greener way to travel:

Inspired by the recent National Bike Week, the fleet and fuel management company have made a particular effort to keep their staff using two wheels instead of four.

“The event has been a real success,” commented Tracey Young, Fleet Manager at Arval.

“At Arval we encourage our staff to consider the environment when they travel and think about their modal choice so it’s great to give people the chance to have a go on the electric bikes and scooters.”

“The event has generated significant interest and a lot of people came along who had never seen, let alone been on, an electric bike before. We may have even converted a few who wouldn’t normally consider cycling.”
