There are all sorts of reasons why people ride bikes. A bike is the most versatile of machines, getting you from A to B in the most efficient way possible. It’s a cheap way of getting around and you can cover a couple of miles in less than 15 minutes at an unhurried pace. It can give you the daily exercise you need, and save you a great deal in petrol money too.
There are a number of good sources of information and support:
- Swindon Travel Choices: Cycle maps, route planners, cycle loan schemes, local events and much more information available.
- Cycle Swindon: Working in partnership with public, private and voluntary sector organisations, Cycle Swindon contribute to increasing the number of people cycling in the borough of Swindon.
- Cycle Training: From training children to take those first steps (or should it be “pedals”) on their bike to very advanced mountain bike riding. There are even courses to learn how to keep your bike in top condition.
