Cycling is a great way to get more active. Getting on your bike can be fun, it is environmentally friendly and a cheap way to get around.
Cycling increases your heart rate and strengthens muscles. It is a great way to burn calories and is good for your mental wellbeing.
To make sure you are safe whilst cycling, make sure you check your bike before each ride, wear a helmet and ensure your bike has lights.
So why not give cycling a go and BE YOUR OWN HERO!
