There are a lot of benefits to cycling regularly – you can save money on motoring and public transport costs, and keep fit without having to pay for the gym.
Cycling can also save you time, as integrating cycling into every day activities, such as travelling to the Academy means you don’t have to set time aside to keep fit and regular cycling can help to burn off calories and increase fitness levels.
Cycling for leisure is a great activity for families to enjoy together.
To find the quietest, quickest or most pleasant route to your destination plan your cycle route using a journey planner.
