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.

Testimonials

Start of Quote SpeechmarkI cannot recommend Cycle Solutions highly enough. It has been a success for the organisation, a breeze to administer from start to finish and a hit with the staff. We’ve had a great take up in our first year and an expectation of this to rise going forwards. End of Quote Speechmark

Start of Quote SpeechmarkOldham Council ran a scheme with Cycle Solutions for the first time in 2015 and we have been very happy with the service provided. The website option meant more employees signed up as it was hassle free and we were also able to include our local businesses which was important to us. The level of support from Cycle Solutions has been excellent and have received positive feedback from a number of staff members. The promotional materials and roadshows were also very well received. End of Quote Speechmark
