Why cycle to work?
Cycling is quicker than a car in towns, faster than walking and the bike is one of the most energy-efficient machines ever invented. The amount of energy to power a cycle three miles would only move a car 85 metres! You are also playing an important part in reducing emissions of the planet-warming gas CO2.
Work out your route before jumping on your bike on Monday morning. Take you time to plan your route and maybe try it out over a weekend to see how it goes. It’s nice to know in advance how long the journey should take. Use the ride to get to know the local area a bit better – unearth some lesser-known back roads and use quiet side roads.
Where to start?
Start slowly to build up your confidence and fitness level – try cycling to work once a week to start or maybe cycle part of the journey. More than 9000 people come into Torbay for work, so you could try parking your car on the outskirts of Torquay, Paignton or Brixham and cycling to work from that point.
There are over 43,000 people who both live and work in Torbay. The opportunities to commute across Torbay by bike are immense, but planning your route and being prepared are essential.
