Tilbrook is a business park located 5 miles south east of the centre of Milton Keynes and home to over 20 businesses including well-known brand names such as Red Bull Technology, T-Systems and Trek. Since the start of Smartgo Milton Keynes in February 2014, many of the businesses based on Tilbrook have been part of the Tilbrook Travel Hub. This operates as part of Smartgo Milton Keynes. Many of the Tilbrook employers have recognised that by working together, more can be gained to help make staff travel to work easier, cheaper, healthier and more sustainable. What has been the success so far?
Here are some top tips on how to stay happy and safe on your bike when cycling during the cold and icy winter months.
Reconsider your route. Quiet roads that are good to ride on in fair weather are more prone to freezing, particularly early in the morning and bends can be very difficult if icy. Sometimes a gritted busier road is better than an icy quiet road.
Jacket and gloves should be numbers one and two on your checklist. Your jacket needs to be water and wind proof, but also breathable and not too thick. It's amazing how quickly you can overheat while cycling, even on the coldest days and you can always add extra layers underneath if necessary.
What better time to start a new travel habit.
