Choosing the right bike

Bikes come in all shapes and sizes, and choosing the right one for you depends on what sort of riding you’re going to do – check out our handy guide here.

Cycling to Work

Cycling to work is the best way to get the most benefit out of using your bike, as it cuts out expensive commuting costs,  gets you feeling energised for the day ahead and means your daily exercise is already done by the time you get home, so you can cancel the gym membership as well. Find out more here.

Choosing your route

Picking the right route can make all the difference to your journey – avoiding the busy roads in favour of quiet back roads and cycle paths will make your ride much more enjoyable. Plan your route with the journey planner.
