The car dependency culture is taking its toll on our health and that of our children, not only because of pollution levels which exacerbate lung disease but also contribute to an increase in overweight and obese children who are denied regular daily exercise.
The recommended 'daily dose' of activity is 20-30 minutes. This level of activity is known to reduce stress, boost the immune system and reduce the risk of heart disease. So by undertaking some of these shorter journeys by bike or on foot, not only are you 'doing your bit' for the environment, you are helping yourself and your children, to get fitter and save money as well as giving the car a rest!
Cycling is environmentally friendly and provides staff with regular exercise thus helping to reduce stress. Storing cycles takes up less space than car parking.
