Re: Not driving to work could save 1,000

Exercise won't see off obesity and diabetes, diet change will.

3 local schools had their bike sheds removed. as "maintaining them was too expensive".

No-parking zones set up around all 3 schools, plus the new bane of drivers' lives... 20 mph limits.

Local Primaries closed, pupils now have to travel further and further from age 4, often miles not yards. And as several primaries are now switching to "Welsh Medium Teaching" those that do not want to be educated in Welsh have to travel even further.

Free bus pass for under 11's having to travel over 2 miles. Free bus pass for 11 -16's travelling over 3 miles. No bus pass for over 16's in most cases. But if you opt out of a Welsh Medium school that is within those distances, you also lose your bus pass. And to top it all, bus routes have been changing to make them unuseable for pupils.

I mentioned a "lifestyle" change which includes a change in diet, supplemented with exercise which will improve general health including controlling weight and therefore lessening exposure to diabetes.

Not really answer.. should make the cycles fly that way they can miss all the traffic jams and the A holes out there that should not even be on the road...

Yes, and when they land they're no longer able walk to school any more, or use colouring books or do that cute little dancing they used to do for their mummy and daddy.
