There will be few better things you’ll be able to do for your health than ditching the car and taking up cycling. Not only will you feel all the better for it, you’ll also likely lose weight, and certainly save money. There will be a few drawbacks to cycling instead of travelling in a car though. Without having a ton or so of steal around you, you will be more vulnerable if you were to get caught up in an accident.
It will also be worth considering that car drivers are notorious for paying little attention to cyclists.
