Plot your route
Regular cycling has several health benefits including cutting the risk of chronic illnesses such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes and stroke. It can also boost your mood and keep your weight under control.
Cycling over short distances can also be quicker than driving and it is free.
But we know it’s not always easy to find the best routes, and if you’re new to cycling, cycling on the roads for the first time can be a bit daunting. That’s why it’s helpful to prepare by planning your journey and plotting your route before you head out.
