Keep on Rolling: Reasons to Ride a Bike


Most people learned how to ride a bike when they were kids, but if you have not gotten back on a saddle since your childhood days, there are plenty of reasons why now is the time to take up this highly practical sport and mode of transport. If you are still not convinced, we are going to run through just a few of the main reasons why you should take up the riding habit once again - or even for the first time if you never learned before!

It is Fantastic for Your Health

The health benefits which are directly associated with cycling and ample and numerous. First of all, it is very good for your heart, and people who cycle for at least 20 miles a week cut their risk of coronary heart disease in half. Getting the kind of moderate exercise which cycling provides can also help to boost your immune system. People tend to live very sedentary lives these days, so anything to get you out of the house and moving has to be a positive thing.

Save Money on Your Morning Commute

Gas prices continue to rise - as does the cost of trains, buses and other forms of public transportation. However, biking represents a one-time investment which will give you miles and miles of travelling. Of course, you need to make sure that you are well-practiced on the road to reduce your risk of getting into a bike accident. But the feeling of gliding past lines and lines of angry looking morning commuters is an unbeatable feeling!

Do Your Bit for the Environment

Instead of pumping out toxic gases into the environment by getting behind the wheel of a car, you are doing your bit for the environment whenever you ride your bike instead. This shows you to be a responsible citizen who is doing your bit for those around you. Not only this, you may find that there are certain tax incentives out there for riding a bike for work purposes as many governments are trying to convince more people to get out on two wheels.

See the Place You Live Differently

Driving, getting the bus or going on the underground doesn’t give you the best impression of the place you live. Cycling allows you to take things that little bit slower and maybe get a different impression of the place you call home. You also have the freedom to stop and get off wherever you would like - and perhaps even discover a new favourite part of your town or city.

Low Impact Exercise

While running or jogging can be hard on your joints and muscles, cycling is a relatively low impact exercise. Of course, you may feel a little sore if you have not cycled in a long time, but you are much less likely to suffer from ligament and tendon damage than if you try out some other kind of more high-impact sporting activity.
