Cycling is a great way to get fitter. It’s low impact, so you’re less likely to injure your joints, and burns loads of calories. What’s more, it can even save you money – perfect if your resolution was to pinch the pennies a bit this year!

Riding your bike to work means no more expensive train fares and fewer trips to the petrol station. Even if you’re not riding to work, you don’t have to fork out for a gym membership any more.

Of course, it’s still a little chilly outside. Here are some of our top tips for cycling if you’re going to be making the most of the outdoors through Spring:

Take a look at your lifestyle


If you’re looking to generally get fitter through your day-to-day life, why not think about using a fitness tracker to take a look at your lifestyle? These keep an eye on how much you’re moving, as well as things like the quality of your sleep.

What’s more, most fitness trackers can give you a nudge by vibrating or using lights if you’re not moving enough – a great way to remind you to stop procrastinating and get on with it!
