Celebrating World Bicycle Day
Today is World Bicycle Day and we celebrate our favourite mode of transport, the bicycle. Whether you’re a racer, a slow pacer or a commuter, the bike is the gift that keeps giving and our Udderly Smooth Anti Chafing Chamois Cream (with shea butter) is the must have product to prevent chafing.
As we humans try to recover and rebuild during the Covid-19 pandemic our planet also recovers and mother nature is silently hard at work behind the scenes. With the lack of car pollution we have seen our air quality become cleaner and many of us are left wondering (where possible) if we need to use the car to get to work or should we bring out the bike. The cleanest mode of transport (besides walking) not only respects our planet but also has HUGE health benefits… and who doesn’t want to feel a little better?
Forbes tells us that “commuters who cycled to work had a 41% lower risk of dying from all causes than people who drove or took public transport. They also had a 46% lower risk of developing and a 52% lower risk of dying from cardiovascular disease, and a 45% lower risk of developing and a 40% lower risk of dying from cancer.”
WOW!! We can’t argue with those numbers. The only downside to cycling is saddle sore but fear not… kiss chafed backsides goodbye with Udderly Smooths Anti Chafing Chamois Cream (with shea butter). This “miracle cream” works wonders on that awful burn caused by cycling. But don’t take our word for it check out our 5 star reviews from our very satisfied customers HERE.
Udderly Smooth supports Cyclone 24
Wales’ 24 hour track relay set to clock up 10,000 miles for homelessness charity
Hot on the ‘wheels’ of Team GB’s amazing achievements in Rio, Welsh homelessness charity, The Wallich, is hosting an epic fundraising cycle challenge, which will see participants cycle the equivalent distance from Cardiff to Sydney.
Cyclone 24 will take riders on a journey totalling 10,000 miles, during a 24 hour track relay which will take place at Wales National Velodrome.
We are pleased to be supporting this worthwhile event and wish everyone the very best of luck!
This is the second consecutive year the Cyclone 24 event has taken place following last year’s hugely successful inaugural event, which raised over £17,000 to support homeless and vulnerable people across Wales.
In total, 24 teams of six cyclists will ride non-stop around the velodrome track beginning at midday on Sunday October 16.
Cyclone 24 is a joint event between strategic branding agency Stills and The Wallich and is being supported by local businesses The Victoria Park Clinic, Effective Communication and cycle coaching specialists Rowe & King. Additional supporters include Source Insurance, 9Bar, Shake Shack and Udderly Smooth.
Steve Sulley, Managing Director of Stills said: “Partnering with the Wallich on Cyclone 24 was an easy decision for me. They are a charity that change the lives of vulnerable homeless people.
“They don’t just provide a cup of tea on a cold morning, their support systems provide a path to a whole new way of living. That ethos is the reason that we adopted the Wallich as our nominated charity. They are also our neighbours, and we love cycling, so this is the perfect partnership.”
Zoe Westerman, Strategic Relationships Manager at The Wallich said: “We are so grateful to everyone who has already committed to support the Cyclone 24 event.
“Cycling is such a fantastic sport to take part in and I don’t think anyone can fail to have been impressed by the fantastic achievement of the Team GB cyclists and of course our own homegrown talent within that.
“As a bonus, not only is it a great form of exercise but also very sociable too, and a great way of networking. We look forward to welcoming all new and returning cyclists to this year’s Cyclone24.”
