At the start of the new year, it’s easy to get bombarded and feel overwhelmed with all the “New Year, New Me” messaging everywhere you look. While the new year can be a great time to tackle that to-do list and build new habits, we believe this can be done at any time! That’s why we think that, whatever month you choose, you should start cycling to work in 2020.
OK, so you’ve decided to add cycling to your list of New Year resolutions. GOOD FOR YOU!
Start off once a week and build your habit from there - whether that's in January or in June. Keeping up the weekly routine will help build confidence on the roads and on your bike. We guarantee you that the smugness of arriving into the office having done your exercise for the day, not starting your day in the armpit of your fellow commuters will soon outweigh any doubts you were having about starting cycling!
Here's a list of why we think you should make 2020 the year you start cycling to work.
- It’s good for your health. Cycling is a great way to improve your fitness and heart health - just 30 minutes of daily cycling will begin to benefit your cardiovascular system.
- See a new part of town. If you’ve taken the same tube journey for 365+ days, you know exactly which part of the platform to stand on to get “your carriage”. With a bike, you can explore new streets and with that comes new, local shops, hidden gems and probably a pretty awesome place for your morning coffee.
- Let’s talk endorphins. Cycling releases endorphins which can help people overcome stress and anxiety. Now who doesn't want more of those?
