To celebrate National Cycle to Work Day (August 5th), Northamptonshire housebuilder David Wilson Homes is highlighting its new Duston Gardens development in Duston due to its ideal location.

The Telstar Way development is less than two miles from the centre of Northampton, and also less than two miles from Northampton Train Station. Therefore, residents at the development have an excellent opportunity to travel to work in a healthy, sustainable and easy manner.

According to Cycling UK, Cycling only makes up 1% of transport in Great Britain, with cars and taxis amounting to 77%. Furthermore, only 4% of people cycle as a means of commuting.1

National Cycle to Work Day is aiming to encourage people to consider cycling to work instead of their usual means of transport. Not only is cycling more sustainable for the planet than driving, but it can also help improve both your mental and physical wellbeing.

Jason Hearn, Sales Director at David Wilson Homes South Midlands, said: “With our new Duston Gardens being located so close to Northampton, we are encouraging our residents to consider trialling a new method of commuting.

“Our top tips would be to plan your route ahead so you know how long it may take you, and to check the weather conditions so you can take the correct clothing on your journey.”

Duston Gardens is a new development consisting of 68 three, four and five bedroom homes.

Just a short walk away from Duston, residents will benefit from a number of amenities including pubs, restaurants, a bakery, a florist, a tea room and supermarkets.
