Cycle Calorie calculator
It's never too late to rediscover the beauty of the bike, be it cycling to keep fit, popping to the shops or getting to work. It will increase your fitness, save you money and put a smile on your face.
Have you ever sat in a queue of traffic on the way to work and seen a cyclist sail past and disappear into the distance? Well that cyclist could be you!
It's good for your health!
According to the NHS, someone weighing 80kg (12.6 stones) will burn off more than 650 calories with an hour's riding as well as tone their legs and bottom.
It's good for your wallet!
Once you've bought a bike there is very little cost to cycling. The spiralling cost of fuel doesn't affect cyclists, and you can cover a typical commute to work by cycling at a fraction of the cost that you would travelling by car.
It's good for the planet!
If all the commuters in England with a journey of less than five miles went by bike rather than car or bus, they would save a collective total of 44,000 tonnes of CO2 - the equivalent emissions produced by heating nearly 17,000 houses. So, start making a difference and ditch four wheels for two. Every car journey saved really does count!
