The goal that I have set myself for this year is to be able to ride all the way to work (33km) and all the way home again (another 33km)...and if I am able to achieve that to be able to do it at least twice a week. So far I have been making good progress!
You wouldn't believe it but bike riding puts money in my pocket each and every single week. Because I ride my bike to work each day, it saves me a small fortune in petrol each week. Not only that, but when you start factoring in wear and tear on the car it really starts to add up to some significant figures!
One of the often overlooked benefits to regular bike riding is how easy it is to lose weight and keep it off. We all need to exercise, but in this busy world it is often hard to find the time to go to the gym and work out.
