The Daily Telegraph reports that the bank is offering “High Octane Rides” in Canary Wharf and other regional offices in an attempt to boost employee fitness levels.
The service is provided by High Octane Ride, or HOR, an acronym that is understood to have raised bankers' eyebrows.
The fitness company’s website claims that short, 40-second bursts of high-intensity exercise over a 10-minute workout can have the same benefits as a 45-minute jog. It also encourages users not to change out of their business attire, claiming they will not sweat too much.
The service has been warmly received. One employee said: "This bike has only been in situ for a couple of weeks, but I know many people would be very disappointed to see it go."
