Social distancing on a busy train or bus can be extremely difficult and at peak times, near on impossible. Many of you may be worried at the thought of getting back to your busy commute so cycling is the perfect option! By swapping the train for your bike, you won’t be confined to small, indoor spaces and can easily keep the recommended distance from others.
At least 150 minutes of moderate aerobic activity is recommended per week by the NHS. Cycling is a great example of this, meaning you’d need to do around 30 minutes of cycling a day for 5 days! Introducing cycling into your everyday routine, such as cycling to work, means you can easily reach this target and beyond. Regular cycling has also been proven to improve your cardiovascular health and increase lung capacity and efficiency.
By cutting back on the number of times you use your car and public transport, you can reduce your carbon footprint. Looking after our environment has never been more important, so swapping your car for your bike allows you to do your bit to help climate change. Not only this, but it’s much more cost-effective too. Think of all the money you’ll save on parking and fuel!
