During this pandemic and just like many other households, my family caught the cycling bug. Since cycling is an outdoor activity, we saw it as a very safe way to beat cabin fever. While doing my monthly budgeting, I realised that what started out as a fun activity for the family has also led to a fall in our transport expenditure. I did a quick calculation and this is how much my family saves in transport costs from cycling in a year.


Before we get to the savings in transportation fees, we have to first account for the cost of the bicycles. After a month-long wait as a result of insatiable demand and restricted supply, I finally got a precious slot to purchase the bicycles from the Decathlon online store. We bought 2 bicycles and fitted one with a child seat so that Olympia can come along for our joyrides.
