as well as being healthier and kinder to the environment.

Although less people tend to cycle in the winter months there is no need to abandon cycling as with a little bit of preparation it is possible to safely cycle in the dark and cold.

More than 64% of journeys less than 5km and 44% less than 2km are made by motor vehicles into Bedford town centre, trips that can easily be made by bicycle at no cost using Bedford’s extensive cycle network. This was considerably enhanced during 2016 and further improvements are expected in 2017 and beyond.

Cycling has been on the increase in Bedford for some years with an average rise of 7-8% per year seen over the last eight years.

As well as saving you money, cycling also comes with a number of health, environmental and social benefits.

Riding a bicycle is like swimming, once learnt you will never forget how to do it but if you have never ridden a bicycle or have not cycled for some time and would like to regain confidence in today's traffic there are a number of training courses available in the area.
