Getting on your bike

5 Reasons to Get On Your Bike

The thought of climbing on a bike may strike fear into the hearts of some, but it ignites a childlike desire to escape into the great outdoors in others.

You may think that bikes are just for getting fit, but they’re not just for those who love lycra; anybody can learn to love cycling, and there are many reasons to embrace the bicycle rather than choosing the four wheeled alternative.

Whether you need one reason or five to give cycling a chance, we hope to inspire you to dust off your bike, invest in one or become a familiar face at a local hire shop and reap the rewards it can offer, maybe even becoming a cycling convert.

Tree Surveys With The Kids

This weekend is set to bring fairer weather, so with all the rain and dreary cloud we’ve had lately, why not head out into the great outdoors with the family this weekend for some fresh air. Enjoying some time in the open air doesn’t have to mean trekking around the countryside either. Most of us live within a short distance of a local park which can offer ample space to use up some of that left over Christmas energy lurking in children’s muscles, and there’s the added bonus that most have a play area too, often with a seat nearby!
