Incorporating cycling into your daily routine isn’t just a money saver; it will very quickly help you feel fitter and healthier.
Our best recommendation for cycling? Regular cyclists’ health and fitness levels are on a par with people ten years younger than them!
Cycling can quickly become a passion. For many cyclists, the daily commute isn’t enough. So why is it so compulsive?
The obvious scientific answer is that cycling releases lots of endorphins. And the harder the route, the better you’ll feel at the end of it. But there’s more to it than that. Cycling is just such a fun way to get around. You can see more. You can stop and walk if you need to. And if you’ve got the right kind of bike, you can get off the beaten track too.
When you’ve got a bike – and access to public transport – you’re never limited by how far you can ride. You can mix cycling with public transport and see more of the county without having to push yourself too hard.
So whether you’re just beginning your cycling adventure, or you already live life on two wheels, here are some ideas of places to go, and routes to try...
