A grand idea for cyclists
YOU WOULD IMAGINE that if people were told there was a way they could save themselves €1,000 a year while simultaneously reducing their stress levels, losing weight, strengthening their hearts and increasing their punctuality no end, they’d jump at the chance? Of course they would. Until they realised they would have to leave their car keys at home and start cycling to work. Then the excuses would inevitably start: it’ll be cold and wet; I’ll get sweaty; I might be hit by a car; I’ll look ridiculous; my bike will be stolen; it’s too far – the list of reasons why the vast majority of adults in this country have a almost pathological dislike of cycling is long.
