On your bike this weekend

Biking facts for some inspiration: 

- Cycling three hours or 30 kilometres per week halves your risk of heart disease and strokes.

- A study of nearly 2,400 adults found that those who biked to work were fitter, leaner, less likely to be obese, and had better triglyceride levels, blood pressure, and insulin levels than those who didn’t active commute to work.

- Bicycle commuting burns an average of 540 calories per hour.

- Figures show the average person will lose 13 lbs (5.8 kilograms) in their first year of cycling to work.
