The commute to work, sat in the car in a queue of traffic still miles from home…. or crammed onto a crowded smelly bus whilst someone else coughs on you and all you can hear is the drum beat of someone elses headphones!
So why not cycle towork then! Why not get out in the open air and take you own time to get where you need to go and get fit at the same time! With a tax free scheme a bike and the all the accessories can be affordable and make your trip to work less stressful!
And of course once you’ve got the bike…. the world is your oyster!
Some of our best family days out have been by bike! When they were too little to ride themselves, then in a trailer behind us, on to stabilisers and then the great day of pushing them off to balance on their own wobbling away to a life in the saddle!
We’re lucky where we are than that there are plenty of cycle routes perfect for a day out. Woodland trails with beautiful views and off road paths with no traffic. Many happy holidays in Scotland have been spent on bikes, the satisfaction of reaching the top, the mountain views and the adrenaline rush of the down hill speed!
So get up out of your seat, step off the bus and and feel the wind in your face, save the environment and get yourself fit!
