Have you been hurt whilst cycling?
Although the dark winter nights and cold days can put people off cycling, as we are coming into spring and summer it seems more and more people are returning to cycling as a mode of transport. With warmer days already upon us, many people are taking the opportunity to dust off their bikes and get outdoors.
The numerous benefits of cycling mean that it’s a popular choice for many. In addition to helping the environment by reducing our reliance on cars, using a bike can help improve fitness. In the same way that some runners train for marathons, there are numerous cyclists who train for bike rides and races throughout the year.
Whilst some amateur races are competitive, many people join in for the challenge and are supported by other riders. With bike rides taking place all over the country, and even organised challenges such as bike rides from London to Paris, there are plenty of challenges for riders with different levels of experience.
