If you already own a motorbike, you probably don’t need too many excuses to get out for a ride. But this is a big one:
A recent study by the RAC estimated that for the average commuter, travelling by motorbike rather than car, saves three hours a week.
It saves time and it’s cheaper than travelling by car. More fun too. And increasingly, employers are doing their bit to encourage you to leave the car at home and get to work another way. Lots of local employers already have locker facilities for motorbike riders and cyclists; some have showers – and some even provide secure motorcycle parking. They’re helping to make the motorbike an easy, practical option.
But if your employer doesn’t have any of these facilities, do ask. Most employers are keen to do more to make the daily commute easier for workers.
The cost of travelling by motorbike is much lower than the cost of travelling by car. So how much can you save?
