Cycling keeps you fit, it’s fast, cheap and reliable. On average, cyclists live two years longer than non-cyclists, and regular cyclists are as fit as an average person 10 years younger. More people are cycling every day – going by bike puts you at the cutting edge of the cycling revolution! Our recent State of Cycling report gives a full picture of where cycling is at in the region.
