Get on your bike (or scooter)

Why getting on your bike (or scooter) is important

66% of all car journeys are less than 5 miles. Cars are more inefficient when they are cold, so burn more fuel, costing more money and putting more pollution into the air. 

The average journey to work is just 24 miles in the West Midlands, costing over £2,200 a year. Could you park up and travel on a bike for some of your journey?

Our cycling journey planner and maps and guides make it easy to work out your route to stress free, cheaper travel, and a healthier lifestyle.
