Please note the change of time for Snodland Bike Club, rider meetup TODAY (13/02/24) and TODAY ONLY due to half term (lets enjoy the daylight!):

2PM TILL 4PM

#SnodlandPumpTrack - everyone welcome - BMX bikes and helmets to borrow.

The scaff planks are back! We used to use them all the time in the dark days before the track was built. They are great fun but not as easy as you`d think they might be! Great for skill building.

Otherwise, all the usual bike fun, skillz, sumo, competitions, jumps, races, drinks and snacks, and no need for the floodlights!!

Sadly, no @tonbridgeyouth this week due to being elsewhere at half term.

There are an increasing number of countries that are seizing upon the benefits of cycling...this article is about India. Similar findings to barriers towards cycling...speeding cars, heavy traffic, poorly maintained roads...sound familiar?

The benefits listed in the article are vast, here`s a quote from the article

`Cycling offers an all-encompassing spectrum of benefits, enhancing cardiovascular fitness, muscle strength, and joint flexibility, while also managing weight. It is also a potent stress reliever, elevating mood, fostering mental clarity, improving sleep quality, and boosting self-esteem for overall well-being. The emergence of group cycling has paved the way towards vibrant community building, enabling people to thrive socially and multiply their potential in numerous ways.`

An interesting and new angle for cycle useage stats.

New study may have found unexpected key to improving society: ‘The only variable that was a significant positive predictor’

The authors established that there are four facets of orientation toward the common good: political participation, social participation in organizations, neighborhood solidarity, and neighborly helpfulness.

“Cycling was the only variable that was a significant positive predictor for all four facets of orientation towards the common good,” they wrote.

“These findings are significant for policy and planning because the benefits of cycling over driving are more profound and sustainable than previously thought.”
