Get on your bike!

Monday, 18 August 2014

Thursday September 4th 2014 is Cycle to Work Day and here at Myakka we are doing our bit to encourage everyone to take to get out of their cars and get on their bikes! Following the success of the London 2012, more and more of us are getting on our bikes and this campaign is all about encouraging us to cycle to work. This event is being championed by Dame Sarah Storey the Multi gold-winning Paralympic Cyclist, so why not give it a go?

Cycling to work has a number of benefits: It's a great way to get some exercise in the fresh air, it saves you money- not having to pay for any fuel for the car or buy a bus ticket, and you will arrive at work feeling less stressed and ready to work! Cycling is often a time saver in big cities, a number of research projects have proved that cycling to work is often faster than driving and you’re exercising at the same time as commuting so getting two things done at once!

Last year National Cycle to work days was supported by over 20,000 commuters who clocked up over a quarter of a million miles. And this year they want to double the numbers which will mean over half a million miles commuted by over 44,000 people. As part of the day, there are free bike health checks available, just click here to find your local service. There is no excuse for not getting on your bike!

If you want to take part, why not speak to your employer about encouraging more of your work mates to get on their bikes. It has been proven that people who exercise before work have improved concentration and time management skills, so there is a benefit for them too! Cycle to Work day are also supporting Britain biggest Bike Breakfast which rewards colleagues who have cycled to work on Thursday 4th September with a coffee and a croissant, the perfect reward and guilt-free after you have done all that exercise, or make it an apple or banana for health conscious participants!
