These days more and more people realize the benefits of road cycling, with many choosing to cycle to work rather than driving or relying on public transport. Have you got to try it? Then here are just a few reasons you should…
• Cheap and convenient. With petrol prices only ever seeming to be on the rise we could all do with a bit of extra cash, so why not leave the car at home? As well as the lack of petrol you won’t need to worry about potential congestion charges or parking fees, and it’s far more convenient than hanging around waiting for a bus.
• Better for the environment. We’re all being urged to cut our carbon footprint and be aware of the role we’re playing in polluting our planet, and by cycling instead of driving you’ll be doing your bit for the environment.
• The healthy option. Cycling is a fantastic form of exercise, so you’re essentially getting a great workout as you cycle to work to keep you physically active, fit and healthy. Plus, as well as the obvious health benefits you won’t run the risk of being stuck in traffic jams or suffering from road rage, being a great way to keep stress levels down too.
