Why Cycle?

Because it is Good for you... Good For Your Wallet... Good For Your World...

Good for you...

  • Regular cyclists enjoy a fitness level equal to that of a person ten years younger
  • Cycling at least twenty miles a week reduces the risk of heart disease to less than half that for non-cyclists who take no other exercise
  • If one third of all short car journeys were made by bike, national heart disease rates would fall by between 5 and 10 percent
  • During rush-hour, a bicycle is about twice as fast as a car - good if you hate traffic jams!

 

Good For Your Wallet...

  • Bicycles require no road tax, no NCT, no insurance, no licensing, no breakdown recovery services,
    and above all no fuel bills.
  • A good bicycle needs at most about ‚ā¨50-worth of maintenance a year - less if you do a bit yourself.
    How much does your car need?
  • A good bicycle will last for years, if not decades. How long did your previous car last?
  • A bicycle can be parked just about anywhere, so no more expensive car park bills.

 

Good For Your World...

  • Twenty bicycles can be parked in the same space taken up by one car.
  • To make a bicycle requires only a fraction of the materials and energy needed to make a car.
  • Bicycles produce absolutely no pollution - they are a lot quieter too.
