Four of the survey’s top five resolutions focused on improving health and wellbeing, with 36% wanting to do more exercise, and 29% aiming to take care of their mental health.
What better way to improve both your physical and mental wellbeing than by turning your commute, school run or trip to the shops into a walk or a bike ride?
Transport is one of the biggest contributors to carbon emissions, with air pollution proving to be a health hazard in towns and cities across the UK. Walking and cycling are zero emitting and allow you to boost physical and mental health at the same time. Walking regularly can reduce the risk of heart disease by 35%, while active travel helps manage stress.
If you have a longer commute or don’t feel up to cycling all the way unassisted, why not look at investing in an ebike. These assisted bikes can travel at up to 15.5mph and allow you to feel confident about taking on longer journeys.
