The UK is seeing a steady increasing in the number of commuting journeys made my bike. Factors such as rising fuel and travel costs and a growing consciousness of the importance of keeping fit and healthy are encouraging more people to take to two wheels.
There are a host of benefits to be gained by cycling your commute;
it’s a great way to keep fit and incorporates exercise into your daily routine
you will arrive more alert and ready for the day
convenience! It’s often quicker and more reliable to get to work under your own steam
do your bit for the environment and the community by reducing pollution and congestion.
These are just some of the reasons why we’re supporting Cycle to Work Day, a national event which aims to get as many people as possible cycling to work on Thursday 4th September and beyond.
Once you’ve pledged your support for 4thSeptember, read our guide to commuting with confidence to keep the momentum going.
