Cycling is becoming more and more popular. Cycling produces no carbon emissions and the emissions produced to make the bike are considerably less than for making a car.

It is also considerably cheaper than running a car. After buying a bike and cycle helmet it should cost no more than £50 to service and repair each year to make sure your bike is roadworthy. Make sure you are safe on the roads with a protective helmet and fluorescent vest. For more advice follow the links below to the Cycling Safely Guide and the Highway Code for Cyclists.

Remember to always wear a cycle helmet especially all children should have one when cycling no matter how short the journey.
