One of the easiest ways to take care of our planet is to be aware of our individual carbon footprint. A healthy way of doing our bit for the environment is swapping our cars for glamorous push bikes. Not only will this lower emissions but it’s also a refreshing way to give ourselves a healthier sense of well being. To help us make this change, test out one of Victoria Pendleton’s Somerby Hybrid bikes available at Halfords. These stylish push bikes come in beautiful light shades, giving this eco friendly mode of transport a fashionable and chic twist, perfect for exploring the great outdoors in the sun.
