When it comes down to it, you only need to things to start cycling – a bike and the desire to ride. And Cyclescheme can help with both.
According to the Department for Transport, nearly 60% of car journeys in the UK are under 5 miles. We’re not saying that driving isn’t a sensible option for some journeys – but many could be switched. This spring, we want to help you discover a better tool for the job.
As the UK continues to exit lockdown and we’re able to travel more freely, there’s never been a better time to rethink the journeys you make. If you’re looking to reduce your car dependency, research shows that making the swap for short, simple journeys is the place to start. This could include:
- Trips to the local shops
- Journeys to see friends
- Getting to and from work
These types of journeys are ones that you do regularly, you know where you’re going and they’re often within your local community. It’s easy to see why the #BikeisBest for these kinds of trips.
