Cycle travel is reliable and satisfying. It gets you exactly where you want to go with the minimum of stress and complication and the added bonus of a little gentle exercise.
While others head for the gym, you can have your cake and eat it: moderate cycling burns 300 calories an hour – so a half-hour each way commute earns you a guilt-free slice of gateaux.
Streets Ahead - Cycling UK's Guide to Cycling to Work  has been inspiring people to cycle-commute ever since it was first published in 2005. It includes the stories of a number of cycle commuters (business, novice, family and long-distance), plus lots of advice on skills, route-finding and the benefits of a daily commute by cycle.
