Bicycle travel strikes the balance between covering some decent daily distances, while not passing through areas so quickly that you miss out on local sights, smells, sounds and meeting people. Like many cycling-related things, there are a few different options, so we've shared our experiences to make your first time even better!
Staying home, staying safe, staying alert... it's been a bit full on to put it mildly. We're doing our collective best to protect each other, protect the NHS and protect our sanity. Try as I might, the past few months have left me feeling, if you'll excuse the pun, a little "off balance".
If, like many, the new social distancing rules have left you scratching your head in terms of how to get about? How are you going to make those journeys you used to jump on the tube or bus for without risking your health and the health of those around you? The answer has been lying there all along, the bicycle!
