Can a two-wheel commute boost your productivity?

Travelling to work on a motorcycle, scooter or moped is one of the least likely modes of transport to affect your wellbeing, as we know from a report earlier this year by the Office for National Statistics.

That report found that for journeys up to 30 minutes there was no effect on levels of happiness or anxiety for those who rode a motorcycle, moped or scooters to work. In contrast – for journeys between 15 and 30 minutes – those who walk, cycle, drive a car or take the bus – all experience an adverse increase in some or all of the factors measured.

Now bike insurer Bennetts is going one step further and is investigating whether commuting by motorcycle or scooter has a positive effect on productivity levels in the workplace. It has launched a short survey and wants to know your thoughts (good or bad) on your daily commute. Everyone completing the survey will be entered into a prize draw – the winner will receive a voucher to the value of £500, while five runners-up will each receive a voucher to the value of £100.
