Are you looking to make your next cycle session wheelie great?

Why not team it with some terrific cycling puns and you'll be pedalling along nicely. You'll also save yourself some energy as you can travel three times faster on two wheels than walking without using up any extra energy.

You certainly won't be alone if you take to two wheels: there are over one billion cycles being used around the world. But if your friends and family still need some encouragement to take up cycling you can be the one to champion the case.

While you can't force them to love cycling you can encourage them.

Make sure they're as comfortable as possible, so the right size bicycle, a comfy seat and starting out on quiet routes to build confidence. To make it more fun why not suggest a pedal to somewhere new for an adventure, a family trip out on the bike or joining a cycling club together.

For more laughs take a look at these climbing puns and these car puns.
