Cycling to work

Riding your bike to work is one of the easiest ways to get exercise into your daily routine.

With the right equipment, cycling is suitable for most people of varying ages and abilities.

It’s a low-impact form of exercise, which means it helps you get fitter but is gentle on your joints.

Did you know?

  • 20 minutes of leisurely cycling to work burns around 100 calories
  • Exercise improves your metabolism, releases endorphins and makes you feel good
  • Morning exercise improves mood, lowers stress and increases concentration

All of these benefits mean that more and more people are dusting off their bikes and getting back in the saddle - it’s an energising way to start the day and it can save you money.
