Can't understand why so many people are taking to their bikes recently? These points below should help to iron out some confusion and see why two wheels seems like such a good idea.

1. Cycling is cheap

A lot of people are taking to cycling because its so cheap. The odd puncture and service will cost you next to nothing to sort out and cycling has the potential to save you hundreds of pounds on either transport costs or petrol bills.

 2. Cycling keeps you fit 

Cycling is a great way to stay fit! Its a nice and steady way of burning a few pounds off to and from work, or even at the weekends when you go out cycling recreationally.

3. Cycling is quicker than walking 

Walking is the most available form of transport we have to us but its slow. Cycling, if done efficiently, can feel like a breeze and can get you from a to b quicker than you might think.

4. Cycling is good for the environment 

Unlike cars and other petrol powered vehicles, cycling is good for the environment because it doesn't cause any pollution.

5. Cycling helps reduce congestion

Cycling is also a great way of taking another car off the road, and therefore it helps to reduce congestion in your local town or city.

6. Lastly...Cycling is fun!

Lastly, cycling is a fun thing to do! You see a lot of your surroundings and you have the satisfaction of all the above points when you are riding.

Why not give it a go?
