Why take on Sofa2Saddle?

Last year, Tracey took on Sofa2Saddle after she made the decision to get fit. Running hadn’t worked for her, but cycling seemed more achievable and she wanted to start by cycling 12-miles to work each day, but where did she start? 

That was when she spotted Sofa2Saddle, the plan that would help her achieve her goal.

“By the time the 8 weeks were done, I had formed the habit of cycling so didn’t need that extra push to keep it up. I am now cycling to work three times a week.”

Read Tracey’s story here.

Sofa2Saddle helped Tracey fall in love with cycling and has her completing 36-miles a week just by going to work. Join our challenge today, build up your fitness levels and reduce your carbon footprint just like Tracey did! We’ll make an avid cycler out of you in no time!
