4 reasons to switch to two wheels

4 reasons to switch to two wheels

1. It saves you money

From the cost of using a car and paying money each time you park your car to buying tickets for the bus or train or ... Why not use a bike for traveling! It's really cheaper than what you think, here is an example:

Research by Sustrans Scotland found that if people use bikes for their movements under five miles by bike instead of a car, the average person could save is nearly £2,000 a year – that’s the equivalent of a 9% pay rise.

2. Cycling can be quicker than traveling by car

Yeah, that's true!
Drivers in cities like Los Angelos spend more than a day each year stuck for hours in traffic, so why not using a bike instead, cycling can often be the quickest option, especially for shorter journeys, and it means you can avoid all the frustration of being stuck in traffic.

3. Switching to cycling for short, local journeys is an easy way to make sure you get enough exercise

According to statistics, we need at least 150 minutes of exercising a week but unfortunately, many of us don't reach that level of exercising. Cycling short, local journeys are the best easy solution. Research has also shown that people who travel by bike regularly can have fitness levels of someone up to 10 years younger.

4. Cycling’s good for your mental health too

Ask anyone who rides a bike and they’ll tell you it makes them feel good, not just in body but in mind too. Physical activity has been shown to improve positive mood and reducing stress, according to the Mental Health Foundation.
