- Commuting by bike?
OP, I’m about to make the same change in commuting routine! If you’re looking for a shower try theatres as they usually have them otherwise ask about. You’ll often find anaesthetists cycle or run to work (dunno why) or speak nicely to someone in general office about using on call facilities. Good luck!Posted 4 years agoSuperficialMember
Yeah, NHS trusts are supposed to be encouraging cycling so they should really provide showers. As stated, there will be showers dotted around the hospital – just have to find one that works for you.
At our trust there’s a cycling co-ordinator lady who manages the bike2work scheme, access to bike sheds etc. Maybe you have one of those people?Posted 4 years agoBen_HSubscriber
I work for NHS Blood & Transplant and commute a 14-mile round trip to the Filton centre when I’m not travelling all around the country.
Because it was built in 2008, it has: secure bike storage, showers, locker, a drying room and some emergency cycle kit (pump, WD40 etc) and a helpful e-mail group for cyclists. Most of this is just usual facilities co-ordinated into a bike-friendly package because of the lack of car parking… but it’s the thought that counts.
I don’t usually feel the need for shower. As others have said, unless you sweat like a beast and it’s warm weather; a good merino top and antipersperant will be your allies.Posted 4 years ago
