Transportation methods have changed over time, but bikes are still a good bet. They are reliable and provide a great way to workout for just about anyone. The benefits are many but here are a few to consider.
You cannot ride a bike and not get exercise, they go hand in hand. But other than this it is good for cardio fitness and increasing endurance, strength, stamina, balance and flexibility. You also get the added benefit of losing weight because you are burning calories at a faster rate.
Biking relieves stress not only on the body but the mind as well. It does not matter what your reasons are for biking but you will feel a burst of energy and overall good health from riding.
Your community will benefit from your efforts as well since biking does not cause pollution in and around the city where you live. You can also meet some great people along your way to work or to other activities. The environment is a concern for many organizations and biking is a great way to help keep things Earth friendly.
The convenience of chaining your bike up to just about anything sturdy enough to hold it, is favored over driving around the block trying to find a parking spot when none are available. For short trips downtown or around the block biking is a whole lot easier.
With biking you can go pretty much anywhere there is open space such as to the park or other open areas. Often you may find that it is faster to arrive by bike than it is if you drive. You can avoid traffic and other inconveniences along the way, making the trip a smooth sail.
Saving money is always a concern of most people and biking eliminates the cost of driving to our destinations when biking would be more cost effective.
The cost of driving involves paying for gas, maintenance on the vehicle and oil changes. There is also the added cost of toll charges on bridges during our commute. All this can be money saved if you choose to bike to work.
This is only a summary of the many benefits of biking that you should consider.
