Cycle to Work

More and more employees choose cycling as a form of their commute-to-work because of the many benefits it offers.  Here are some of the benefits of cycling:

FINANCIAL

  • Requires minimal investment
  • Helps save on car expenses (maintenance, insurance, gas, etc.)
  • Helps save on gym membership fees or specialized equipment costs

ENVIRONMENTAL

  • An average cyclist keeps 3.57 kilograms of greenhouse gas emissions out of the atmosphere (Source: Transport Canada).  It takes a tree three months to absorb that much gas (Source: Carbonfootprint.com).
  • Makes our communities more safe and vibrant 
  • Less air pollution means better air quality

HEALTH

  • Helps prolong a person's life span and overall quality of life.  
  • Increases the blood flow to release endorphines, making one feel good.  
  • Decreases blood pressure and lowers cholesterol 
  • Helps a person to lose weight and stay fit. 
  • Has very minimal impact on the body including feet and joints.
