Cycling is Good for

  • The global environment - If people used cycles rather than cars for shorter journeys (less than 5 miles), less "greenhouse" gas would be produced.
  • The local environment - Just imagine what a busy road, currently packed with cars, would be like if the people were riding cycles instead. So quiet, no fumes.
  • Society - Most people could use a cycle for personal transport. If cities were designed around pedal cycle transport, people wouldn't be excluded from normal social activities if they didn't have a car.
  • Yourself - Cycling is cheaper than driving and more flexible than using buses. It's also a great way to enjoy yourself and one of the most simple and effective ways of getting fit. Cycling, even at a gentle pace can help you to feel good and look great. Why waste time and money on boring gym exercise bikes?
