Ride to work tips - Part 1

Riding 2 Work: Will it make a difference?

Yes!  Exercise is the key to well being, and arriving at work in the morning with your daily dose done will make you feel like a million dollars.  Exercise gets the endorphins flowing and cycling is a great form providing stress release.

Long-term health benefits include increased strength, improved muscle tone, decreased body fat and reduced risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes and some cancers.  Remember, bike riding should not feel more strenuous than walking unless you want it to. Don’t push yourself too hard at first.


Do I need to be fit to start?

Cycling to work is a perfect opportunity to start working towards improving your overall fitness and exercise levels.  It's necessary to start somewhere and biking into work is a great opportunity to start at your own pace and go from strength to strength.  It may be difficult at first, though soon you will find your overall fitness levels improving, and those hills and distances become much easier and before long even enjoyable!
