Cycling is freedom. No insurance, no fuel costs, and if the bike breaks, you can fix it. My journey to college happens by bike. it makes my commute easy and enjoyable. The ride takes about 30 minutes through a beautiful park, and a forest along the river.
Short journeys by car contribute massively to global pollution levels, and often involve a fair amount of stationary staring at the bumper in front. Get on the bike, and you’ll save on petrol or cash on public transport, as well as time!
I am currently involved with Edinburgh College Students Association, to promote active lifestyle and low carbon commute. If you think you are spending too much on fuel, and would like to get healthy while you save on travel, see the options down below on the ECSA website.
