Green Tip of the Week: Bike short distances instead of driving there is evidence to suggest you can burn between 500-600 calories cycling for 1 hour not to mention the benefits to your cardiac system when you cycle.


Cycle if you are going less than 3 miles to a meeting or work. You will feel better, the environment feels better and you aren’t spending any money on gas! Try it, you might find you actually like it!
