Enjoying the Benefits of Cycling

A bike can be an enjoyable, economical and healthy choice for short journeys. Did you know that people who cycle more than one hour a week are half as likely to have heart problems as those who don’t cycle at all?  By taking your bicycle you save parking and fuel costs and you are helping the environment; it can even save you time.

Would you like to encourage cycling for  a patient or group you work with? Contact us or download our promotional poster here.

It is also a safe form of transport with far fewer risks than you may imagine. According to the British Medical Association the health benefits of cycling outweigh the risks by 20 to 1.

Our training will help you to be a confident rider in all traffic situations and reduce those risks even further.

If you’re worried about making time for exercise, why not see whether it’s feasible to cycle to and from work. That way you incorporate excellent exercise into your daily routine.

If whilst enjoying the benefits of cycling you spot a problem with our roads, report it here.
