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.

Testimonials

Start of Quote SpeechmarkWe wanted to promote healthy living to all our staff and knew that the Cycle to Work Scheme was a fantastic way to keep staff fit with the added bonus of being able to get huge savings on the cost of a new bike and/or equipment. Right from our initial meeting with Cycle Solutions their representatives have always been very approachable, friendly and knowledgeable, which has helped us make the scheme easy to administer. Their Road Shows and informative promotional material resulted in a very good uptake of the scheme on our first launch from a varied range of staff members. Even after the road shows, the Cycle Solutions representatives went out of their way to help a number of our staff members to try and find specific bikes they required. We would recommend Cycle Solutions to any company; large or small. End of Quote Speechmark
