Often, when talking about the benefits of cycling, a very important point is overlooked. - economic benefits. And in vain, because in a year you can save on a full-fledged trip! Minsk Cycling Society invites everyone to join the unlimited action "Bike saw". Benefit without installments, overpayments and guarantors.

 Let's double-check together. Cycling regularly:

  • boosts immunity and strengthens the heart. You do not spend money on doctor visits, tests and medications. 
  •  soothes the nerves. This means you don't need regular additional sources of stress reduction.
  • reduces the cost of travel to zero. Bicycles are the most affordable means of transportation besides walking. Even taking into account the costs of maintenance, cycling is several times cheaper than public transport, and even more so a personal car.

Now calculate how much you spend each month on drugs, impulsive purchases amid bad moods, and a travel pass. Even if you take the minimum, most likely you will get at least 50 rubles. 50 + 50 + 50 ... As a result, about 600 rubles are obtained per year. And this is a week-long trip to Europe or a last minute trip to the sea. 

You just need one step: get the bike from the balcony, sit down and ride. To work, to school, to the university, to the clinic - for all sorts of things. Believe me, it's easier and more enjoyable than you think. And if it seems that the mood is not right or the weather, you can always re-read the previous paragraph, get inspired and start choosing a direction for a quick trip.  

The expert work of the Minsk Cycling Society is supported by the European Union within the framework of the project "Urban Cycling in Belarus" implemented by the Center for Environmental Solutions and the public association "Minsk Cycling Society" with the co-financing of the GEF Small Grants Program "Development of Cycling in the Regions of Belarus" implemented by the public association "Minsk Cycling Society".
