Of course many people already cycle to work and already know the benefits.
If you don’t why not set yourself the small challenge and take to two wheels?
Here are four tips from Dame Sarah Storey:
- Go at your own pace – Over 50% of commuting journeys are under 5 miles, so don’t worry that you won’t make it into work on time – most cycle commutes are less than 30 minutes.
- Take a healthy snack – Keeping your energy up when you’re cycling is important. Have a healthy snack when you get into work and drink plenty of water and you’ll start the day feeling fantastic.
- Be aware – Always make sure you can hear what is going on around you. If you are making a turn, left or right, always look, look again and then signal.
- Enjoy it! – Cycling is fantastic for health and fitness. It really makes you feel alive and wakes you up if you’re feeling a little bit tired. It’s a fantastic way of being and staying fit.
