No, we’re not environmentalists in the strictest sense, but we do like riding bikes.

Mainly because we enjoy exercise, speed and fun in fresh air and we like to work up an appetite before a good meal, but also because we hate delayed journeys, congestion charges and delays, parking tickets and traffic wardens just like everyone else. The environment bit’s good as well. We don’t want to create unnecessary damage but we do use cars (quite a lot to be honest).


Ever wondered why it takes you so long to get to work? Half the journeys made in the UK are under two miles long, yet only 2% are made by bike. Coincidentally, according to the media and government, the nation seems to be gripped by a mushrooming obesity problem.

A four-mile journey in Central London will now take 40 minutes by car, 30 minutes by tube and 22 minutes by bike. A study carried out for the Department of Transport found that ‘even a small amount of cycling can lead to significant gains in fitness’.

The study found that aerobic fitness was boosted by 11% after just six weeks of cycling ‘short distances’ four times a week.

If cycling the equivalent of four miles to and from work in total a day, the aerobic benefit increased to 17 per cent.


We think it’s worth showing people that cycling is a realistic alternative to the car for a lot of journeys, so we decided to support a local cycling team. You can find it here andershorizonrt.terapad.com   Anyway, we’ll put the

soapbox away. Just thought we’d mention it.
