On your bike!
As the weather warms up and summer stretches out before us, our minds turn to sunny days and lighter evenings.
We might not always get what we hope for, but we can make the most of the sun when it comes out by getting our bikes out of the shed, giving them a dust down and getting out and about in the countryside.
Cycling is also a very environmentally friendly way to travel and gives us a way of seeing parts of the countryside that we wouldn’t be able to, sat in our cars on the motorway.
So why not check out Britain’s cycle network by visiting the Sustrans website and taking a look at the National Cycle Network maps.
You could also consider cycling to work.
Not got a bike? Why not check out the Cycle to Work scheme.
Funded by the Government’s Green Transport Initiative, the Cycle to Work scheme allows employees to purchase a bike and cycling equipment and pay for it in instalments via their wages.
Here at DSN we operate the Cycle to Work scheme which has been taken up by a few members of staff. Read more about staff who cycle in our Winter 2012 newsletter.
Wherever you go on your bike this summer, a cycling helmet and bell are essential kit. A picnic is optional :)
