With much of Australia in the grip of drought, and rainfall patterns changing worldwide with climate change, water restrictions and increasing water prices are becoming the norm.

Cycling is a sustainable mode of transport. There’s nothing quite like the feeling of getting from A to B under your own steam, or pedal power in this case.

Last year, after I started working in the city three days a week, I soon grew tired of the train commute and looked in to cycle instead. And I’m so glad I did!

Since I switched the train for bicycle for my 14km commute I've been getting stronger, faster and happier. Plus I'm saving loads of cash too!

If your new years’ resolutions include getting fitter, saving money, or reducing your impact on the environment, this episode is for you!

I’m joined by Matt Tozer from Bike Society who will share his best tips for getting into cycling, particular commuting to and from work.
