Cycling Pool Resource Pack - linked project

Javascript is required to view this map.

By: Epsom and St. Helier University Hospitals NHS Trust


£750 for cycling pool resource pack for 5 trusts (Kingston Hospital, WMUH, St Helier, QMH and Springfield).

Packs to include: 5 bike repair kits at £10 each; General lubricant spray (recommended by Dr Bike) at £10; 1 male and 1 female high visibility jacket at £30 each; 1 pair of waterproof cycling trousers at £30. Each pack will therefore cost around £150.

We propose that each trust has their pack available as a pool resource for staff.  The repair kits and lubricant would be available for staff needing to maintain their bikes, while the jackets and trousers could be loaned out when necessary.

Update from St Helier Summer 2011:

The packs are being used here at Epsom and St Helier (the pump and lubricant being well used) - although the clothing has been made available for staff only the jackets have so far been used.
