Avoid the jams.
With so many dedicated on and off road cycle routes and bike parking facilities throughout the county, Gloucestershire really is a great place to get on your bike.
Cycling is certainly one of the cheapest ways of getting around. It’s quick and easy too. You can cover more than two miles in less than 15 minutes. That beats sitting in traffic!
Of course, cycling is a great way to help keep you fit and healthy too. Getting on your bike instead of taking the car doesn’t take much effort, but it can make a big difference, both to your health and the local environment.
Cycling brings enormous health benefits:
One of the great things about cycling in Gloucestershire is that you can combine it with public transport very easily. The Cotswold Explorer ticket gives unlimited travel throughout the county on a one or three day ticket.
It’s a great way for commuters and recreational cyclists to manage longer distances without having to leave their bikes at home. You can pick up a ticket at any mainline station in the UK and at participating bus services in the Cotswolds. There’s plenty more information at Escape to the Cotswolds…
|Adults really need to get 30 minutes of moderate physical activity each day. That’s easy to fit into your daily routine with a 15 minute cycle ride to and from work every day.|
Car drivers are actually exposed to more air pollution than cyclists in slow moving traffic.
