Commuting to work?

If you’ve had enough of those rush hour jams, going by bike could be the ideal solution you’ve never thought of.

Cycling is good for you, good for your wallet and good for the environment.

  • Save money every time you ride – it’s cheaper than running a vehicle
  • Save time every ride – no need to set off early to beat the traffic, you’ll be beating the traffic every time
  • Save yourself – you’ll be fitter and healthier. What’s not to like about having the fitness level of someone 10 years younger?
  • Save the planet – reduce your carbon footprint with a pollution-free commute

Take a look at our commuter profiles to read the experiences of people across Greater Manchester who already get on their bike to travel to work.
