Wednesday 15th August 2018 is Cycle to Work Day 2018, and it aims to encourage everyone to travel to work on their pedal bike.
It is the UK’s biggest cycle commuting event. Since the event began in 2012, over 2 million miles have been ridden.
The health benefits from regular cycling include:
- improved joint mobility
- improved posture and coordination
- increased cardiovascular fitness
- decreased body fat levels.
Cycling can help to prevent depression, obesity and arthritis.
Riding a bike, along with a healthy eating plan, is a great way to lose weight.
According to research, a half-hour bike ride everyday can burn nearly 5 kilograms of fat over a year.
Everyone who pledges their miles has the chances to win some incredible prizes.
