Hello, and Happy Friday!
Today’s quote, well it’s not really a cycling quote, more about being healthy and happy which we feel is a great message.
Getting yourself, and your family out on your bikes is a great way to bond as we know, and a great way to instill a routine of exercise and a love of the great outdoors. There’s nothing better than feeling the wind in your hair as you free-wheel down that biggest of hills, your kids yelling out as you do so.
Being healthy and happy, well that’s our greatest wish for ourselves, family and friends isn’t it, and today’s quote reminds us of that.
Have a great weekend everyone, and enjoy your cycling!
If you read the blog regularly you’ll know that we are big fans of the odd inspirational quote. And as it’s Friday and March is pretty much here we thought it would be nice to end the week, and the month on something uplifting.
Wheel Brothers run some lovely quotes and we are big fans, so we hope they won’t mind us sharing this one that we saw on Pinterest. It reminds us to keep going even when the going gets tough. As many of you are parents, you might need reminding of this more often than others!
We were also very inpsired this week by the Team Honk cyclists and their 50k bike ride for Sport Relief. The team of 7 endured 8 punctures along the way, slowing up their ride and adding to their fatigue. They did it though and we were so proud to be a small part of their effort by providing some of their wet weather gear. Well done ladies! You definitely gave yourself the reasons for ‘why you can’. Great effort.
So if you’re facing an uphill battle in the next few days, hopefully this little quote will inspire you to dig deep and get through it. Have a great weekend everyone!
You can see the full range of quotes, and lots more on the Wheel Brothers website.
So we hope you had a great Christmas, and as we look towards the New Year many of us start to think about goals and resolutions. If we’ve over indulged during the festive period one thing we tend to think about is how to get fitter and live a healthier lifestyle.Much of which can include getting out on your bike of course. During the next few months we want to help and encourage you to cycle more, and generally get more out out of your life. If you’d like to see us write about a particular topic that would be useful to you, do let us know.
In the meantime we would like to wish you a very Happy and healthy New Year from all of us at Cycle Centre.

Does cycling make you happy?
A study in the US earlier this year found that cyclists are the happiest of all commuters. Well that’s probably no surprise I guess. The Over40Cyclist has found a study that says just 10 minutes of cycling every day will lift your mood and make you feel happier. It all makes sense really. Get outdoors, feel the wind in your hair and forget about work and family responsibilities. We all know exercise is good for us and increases the endorphins in our system helping us to feel better generally so it’s no wonder that getting out on your bike every day will do the same.
How often do you get out on your bike?
When asked why cycling is such a good thing, Adrian Bell of Transport for London says, “It’s quick, it’s cheap, it’s good for you, it’s pretty much free once you’ve got a bike. And it’s fun! Cycling also offers a sense of independence, of being able to get up and go wherever and whenever you want. That’s invaluable.”
And it’s bound to make you feel good!
There’s even a Danish Study that shows kids who bike or walk to school do better in class. I guess many of these studies are stating the obvious but it’s always good to see it written down in a scientific way to help prove what most of us have known for a long time.
Cycling makes you feel happy! And if you still don’t believe us, check out this blogpost here that shows why cyclists are definitely the happiest people on earth. It’s a fun read.
Today’s short and snappy post is a fantastic cycling quote from Albert Einstein. We love this analogy and hope you do too. Keep on moving!
