Save time and money, stay fit and protect the environment

Using your muscles to get to work is a healthy option and often faster than driving. For example, cycling is a faster way to get around a city on trips under seven kilometres.

Savings: You save tens of euros by leaving your car in the garage more often and you also get fitter. Using a car for short trips, for example when shopping or going to work, significantly increases your fuel costs.

Remember this: The traffic network for unprotected road users may be poor where you live, so you may need a car daily. However, choosing the right bicycle, such as a hybrid, will open up new routes that you can use to conveniently get to your destination.

Reducing your carbon footprint: Using a bicycle instead of driving for 20 weeks of the year reduces your carbon footprint by about 2% per year.
