As people fear returning to crowded public transport, but also because bikes can be a great way increase mobility while exercising.

With fewer cars driving and less traffic in cities, cycling has become safer, and many people are re-discovering their city while cycling.

We can all make an immediate contribution to the planet, by making these small journeys (less than 2 miles) by foot or cycling.

Get a second hand bike, it’s cheap, pre-loved, zero-waste and start enjoying the fresh air!
