Benefits of Cycling to Work

Janine Roets
Town of Cambridge

My cycle to the Town of Cambridge Administration Centre takes about 20 minutes and I avoid busy roads keep to mainly local quiet streets.

I enjoy it because it allows me to get some exercise while commuting and it generally only takes 5 minutes more than driving, this is due to the 8:30 AM school drop off traffic.

I like trying to beat my fastest time to and from work every day and finding alternate routes that improve the ride. I also find I have more energy at work after cycling.

Hi Janine - thanks for sharing your take on the benefits of a bike commute. Your story prompted me to think it could be nice to collect a few more stories like this from colleagues and then post an article in your internal (or external) newsletter - a great way to role model active travel (and earn more points)! For now I have given you 10 points for the 'good read' nature of your story.
