"I must get fit" preoccupies nearly everyone at the beginning of the year.
One of the best ways to get a yourself back in shape is to get on a bike. Jogging is good for burning fat quickly, but let’s face it, it’s not that much fun and your body takes a real beating each time your foot slams the pavement. Cycling, however, is pleasant and easier on your joints (your bum takes all the weight) and there are a bunch of other great reasons too...
To get your bike in shape, throughout February we're offering The Commuter service for £50 (normal price (£70) when you book online or by email.
Our Top 4 Reasons To Cycle...
1. It's great for all the family
You can all get fit together just by having a day out. If you’re looking for somewhere suitable for family biking, try Richmond Park or Bushy Park.
2. You could live longer
You can add a good 9 years to your life with just 45 minutes cycling a week, according to a study by Kings College London.
3. Good for relationships
Cardio vascular fitness, which cycling is perfect for, boosts your energy. Fitness can boost libido and, according to Harvard, men who cycle are 30% less likely to have impotence issues.
4. Beat the bugs
If you have a regular fitness routine involving cardio and core strength (like cycling with stretching), your immune cells should be more active, enabling you to fight off colds and bugs!
