Cyclists not only save money on fuel but also on maintenance, taxes, insurance and parking.

And it doesn’t just benefit your wallet. Cycling is good for overall health and well-being and for the planet.

A spokesman for BobbinBikes – www.bobbinbikes.com – said: “We all know for years the benefits of cycling from a health and environmental point of view, but when you look at it in terms of cold hard cash, the benefits I had to use two wheels instead of four.

“We are not unrealistic – there are times when only one car will do, but for a short trip to work, to go to the shops, to meet friends and have fun, then to use the motorbike. There is a way forward.

“If you leave the car altogether, then there are huge savings on all these essential payments like road tax, MOTs and services and insurance.”

Here’s BobbinBikes guide on how cycling can save British cash:

Maintaining your bike is something you can do for yourself instead of doing it for you. Checking regularly will keep your bike in good condition, but if there’s something you can’t fix, check it out.

Fuel costs

Gasoline prices have skyrocketed in recent years. Replacing the two wheels means that the cost will be eliminated. Statistics show that in 2020 the British were spending £ 22.30 per week on fuel.

Road tax

Insurance

Annual car insurance contributes a lot of cash. According to Statista, in 2020, young drivers (over the age of 20) should expect to pay more than £ 800 a year. The cheapest bracket for 65-year-olds was £ 491 a year. Making sure your bike is a part of the cost, you’ll be looking at anything from £ 34 to £ 139.

Parking

If you have a bike, you won’t have to pay to park again! Put a strong lock with you and familiarize yourself with safe places to leave your bike.

Health and fitness

Cycling is a great form of exercise, and it raises your heart rate and pumps blood around your body, burning calories. So unsubscribe from your gym and get on your bike instead.
