Fun, Stay Fit, Save Money, Eat More!

I started cycling to work about five years ago. At first it was a five mile journey each way and I was pretty unfit but as time progressed I improved and thoroughly enjoyed it. Just over a month ago I moved to the outskirts of London (Essex) which meant my cycle route would increase from five miles to 15 miles each way making it a total of 30 miles per day! I didn't want to give up cycling to work every day ...

Cheaper, less stressful and more fun!

I decided to start cycle commuting in London after the worry about how to get in during the Olympics. I bought a hybrid and very quickly found it a great way to commute. I started off once a week, then twice and since then I commute by bike, on average 2-3 times a week. More in the summer and less in the winter. I don't beat myself up if I don't for a week or two as the weather is bad or I'm not feeling gre ...

Freedom, exercise, fresh air, speed

Since taking up cycle commuting over eight years ago I have increased my riding to 4-5 days per week and from 8 miles a day to more than 16. It helps to be on mainly rural roads, but they can still suffer from a lot of traffic at busy times. My car use has dropped to less than 3,000 miles a year and as a father of 3 this is the only time I can find to get some decent exercise in. It's great fun, refreshing, ...

It’s great fun, keeps me fit and saves money!

I've started cycling to work three years ago and haven't stopped ever since! I remember the very first day, when it took 50mins to get to work (only 8 miles!!), it was a real pain, loads of sweat and was exhausted by the time I've reached the office! My backside was hurting for days, but I was reluctant to quit and needed to save on Oyster fare, so kept on cycling. Pain had gone after 2 weeks and after 3-4 ...

Keeps me fit and sets me up for the day

I was completely fitness-phobic my entire life. I got a bike to commute to work to save money on public transport and because I lived too far to walk to work. I was very apprehensive, but took a few adult cycling lessons which helped me build my confidence on the roads [your local council might have provision for this]. I never thought I would be a cyclist, but here I am. If I can do it, so can anyone. For ...

Three in one – transport, exercise and fun

My first day at a new place of work, ten miles from home. Of course I drove. One hour and forty minutes later I was seriously hacked off at having sat in traffic for that long. "I could cycle it in that time" I thought. And so I did. Yes, the muscles ached for a bit, and I got wet and cold on the odd time when it rained. Ten years later and I'm still doing it (albeit on a slightly better bike than when I st ...

I feel more awake and more energised for the day

I bike 11km to work which takes about 25minutes. Where as driving would often take about 40mins depending on the town traffic of Ipswich. Therefore the saving of petrol, money on parking and also the time from walking to and from car park. I have found also that the use of bike lanes speed up the journey. One down side is the cost of a bike, but the bike to work schemes make it easier.  I bought an older ro ...
