You may not know how to ride, or it might have been ages since you last got on a bike, but that shouldn’t stop you from getting out there and enjoying all of the great things about cycling.
Most of all, cycling is a good bit of fun and it's one of the best ways of getting around. Being active is good for your body and mind, and using a bike to get around means you’re getting exercise while you get to where you’re going.
A cycle-friendly city is a city that’s great to live in. Choosing to take a trip by bike not only reduces air and noise pollution, but also frees up road and parking space and makes the city nicer in general — what’s not to love? You might be a while off using a bike as your main form of transport, but setting yourself a goal to do an errand or make a trip by bike can keep you motivated while you learn.
All you need to do is get a bike and start riding it, and a Pedal Ready course could help kickstart your journey.
With a little practice, you’ll soon be using your bike to have fun, save time and stay fit.
