If you’re lucky enough to own a bike, not only does cycling get you from A to B, but it’s also a great form of low impact exercise and a fun activity you can do with friends or as a family. Getting out in the fresh air also has benefits for your mental health and wellbeing.
Apart from the initial cost of a bike, cycling is a great activity to enjoy for free at a time that suits you.
