Author: admin / Comments: 0
Family on bikes

If you are trying to find reasons to get out there and ride your bicycle, but you can’t really figure it out…let me show you that there are fantastic reasons why one should ride the bike!

Regardless of your age, cycling is one of the best forms of overall exercise. It gets you out of the house, lets you enjoy the environment and provides many ways to socialize, such as riding with friends and family. So, take a look at the 10 reasons why you should be out there too:

1. Quality family time – it offers the possibility to spend some quality time with your family while keeping fit at the same time! Cycling is a great way to keep the whole family fit.

2. Healthy lifestyle - cycling is a fun way to get children away from electronic games and indoor entertainment and encourage them to have outdoors activities in the fresh air. Making exercise fun, will encourage children to live an active, healthy lifestyle.

3. Good pattern for kids - learning how to cycle at a young age may encourage children to use cycling in the future as a means of transport.

4. Socialize - cycling is not just a great form of exercise but a fun way to catch up with friends and meet new people. Riding with friends and family, commuting to work with mates or participating in cycling events are all great ways to socialize.

5. Save your money - owning a bicycle is great value for money. It is less expensive to maintain a bicycle then a car, so you can save some of your income.

6. Reduce your carbon footprint - cycling is good for the environment. Taking up cycling will allow you to cut the greenhouse gases and noise pollution produced by driving, and reduces the number of cars on the road.

7. Health – there are many health benefits when it comes to cycling. What you should know is that:

  • Just 30 minutes on a bicycle ride a day can halve your risk of diabetes and obesity
  • Cycling uses major muscle groups and gets your heart rate up
  • Cycling causes less joint strain than some other activities as it is a low impact form of exercise.
  • Helps prevent heart disease, stroke and high blood pressure
  • Reduces the risk of developing type II diabetes and some cancers
  • Helps build and maintain healthy bones, muscles and joints reducing the risk of injury
  • Promotes physical well-being.
  • Maintaining or improving physical function and independent living
  • Improving social interaction, quality of life and reduces the risk of depression
  • Building and maintaining healthy bones, muscles and joints, and reducing the risk of injuries from falls
  • Reducing the risk of heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, type II diabetes and some cancers.

8. Independence - cycling gives you the independence and freedom to get around, at low cost.

9. Cycling is for all ages - if you are not confident to cycle on a two wheeled bicycle there are tricycles available. This can help you keep your balance, gain confidence and feel safe while still gaining the enjoyment and benefits cycling has to offer. Cycling also has low impact on joints and therefore is a great form of exercise for all ages and fitness levels.

10. Developing your confidence – confidence starts with your first bike… So, make sure to buy your child his or her first bike at a young age; it will definitely make a difference in a child’s life!

So for all these reasons, get out there on your bike today. Have fun and enjoy your ride! Take your kids out for a ride as well and let them learn about the many benefits of cycling.

There's a special bond between kids and bikes that can never be broken. Bikes represent fun, freedom, and fresh air, which is everything a kid needs. Moreover, biking is a healthy pastime that kids will never outgrow and it builds the foundation of a healthy lifestyle.

The great thing about cycling is that it is a healthy outdoor activity that the entire family can enjoy together.

What’s the first step? Well, if you don’t own a bike, the first step would be to actually buy one… But if you are already the happy owner of a bike, then the smart choice would be to actually ride it!
