Biking and Its Advantages

You need to be physically involved, fit and safe. Regular physical activity helps to protect you from severe diseases such as obesity, heart disease, asthma, mental illness, diabetes and arthritis. Riding a bike on a daily basis is one of the best ways to reduce the risk of sedentary lifestyle-related health issues.

Low impact – causes less discomfort and pain than most other types of exercise. Healthy muscle workout-cycling uses all major muscle groups when you pedal.

Simple – Unlike some other sports, cycling does not require a high degree of physical ability. Most people know how to ride a bike, and when you do, you don't forget about it. Good for strength and energy-cycling increases endurance, power and aerobic fitness. As hard as you want – cycling can be performed at a very low intensity to begin with, once you recover from injury or sickness, but can be built up to a difficult physical exercise.

A fun way to get fit – the adventure and buzz you get from coasting down hills and being outdoors means that you're more likely to cycle on a regular basis compared to other physical activities that keep you indoors or require special times or places. Time-efficient – as a means of transport, cycling replaces sedentary (sitting) time spent driving motor vehicles or using trams, trains or busses with balanced exercise.

If you're not yet persuaded that cycling is good for your health, here are some of the things that can lead to your wellness:

  • increased cardiovascular fitness

  • increased muscle strength and flexibility

  • improved joint mobility

  • decreased stress levels

  • improved posture and coordination

  • strengthened bones

  • decreased body fat levels

  • prevention or management of disease

  • reduced anxiety and depression.

I hope that "drives" you to buy a bicycle if you don't have any.
