If travelling on bendy busses is not for you, then why not join approximately 30,000 others on two wheels instead?

“There has been a serious interest in cycling for the past ten years”, Harald Karlborn, head of Rogaland’s cycle milieu tells Stavanger Aftenblad.

Rogaland has seen the highest increase in numbers in comparison to the rest of the country too.

There are many advantages of using a bicycle; fitness training, and relaxing the mind are just two of them.

“Some even use one for getting to work, and several companies use it as part of their Health and Safety routines”, Karlborn tells the paper.

Time for some fresh air?
