Raising your heart rate through exercise just 5 times per week means you are 50% less
likely to suffer from a stroke, heart disease or type 2 diabetes.

Cycling is the third most popular recreational activity in the UK. An estimated 3.1 million
people ride a bicycle each month 1. It's a low impact exercise, meaning it's easier on your
joints than running or other high-impact aerobic activities. But it still helps you get into shape.

Transport Strategy , City & County of Swansea

Start of Quote SpeechmarkOur first Cycle to Work scheme with Cycle Solutions was a success from start to finish, the manner in which they managed the whole project for South Central Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust, was run very efficiently and professionally and was customer service at its best. From the start the product range was large. Help in promoting the project to all staff (including Road Shows) was highly professional, and they made sure that the procedures put in place for staff engagement to purchase were accessible online and easily understandable. We would have no hesitation in using this company again for further Cycle to Work schemes. End of Quote Speechmark
