Has anyone else but me noticed the increase in cyclist these days? I see more and more people riding their bikes as a way to commute to work with every year that passes. This is a good thing for anyone who does. We all agree that exercise is a good way to stay fit. Cycling to work brings good health because your body is getting a dosage of physical activity that stimulates the heart and muscles.
The Good Thing About Cycling To Work…
Because most of us can’t seem to find the time to go to a gym on a regular basis, cycling to work is a great way to get your exercise in routinely. In fact, you won’t even have to plan a workout schedule because this is something you are going to do every week and that’s going to work.
In an earlier post, I talked about how utilizing your bike to do different things that you normally would drive to do is a great way to get some exercise without it feeling like you are setting out to exercise. This could psychologically make it easier to get that daily dose of exercise inadvertently.
What This Means For You…
Your body is like a machine. You keep it tuned up and it functions better than if you don’t do anything to stimulate your heart, muscles, blood flow and your cardiovascular system. As we go through the years of aging these functions can deteriorate and not perform as well. Much like just sitting there getting rusty.
Cycling actually reduces a lot of things that can give you health problems if you cycle pretty regularly. There are many state & government agencies who have spoken out on just what cycling can do for your health.
There are a lot of potential health risk diseases that can be avoided such as heart attacks, strokes, diabetes, arthritis, obesity, high cholesterol and cardiovascular disease.
The great thing is that it is a low-impact exercise so it will help the joints especially for us who are a little up in age. And for the younger crowd, it will help preserve those joints for when you do age.
Stay Healthy And Save Money
I am sure you have nothing against keeping your body healthy but if you are like me you have no problem with saving money when you can. Just think about how much less you would have to go to the gas station to fill up the old automobile and how much you will cut down on car servicing and repairs.
Bicycles are low end and high end in cost. But they all do the same thing. You don’t have to go out and spend a fortune to get a bicycle. While you are here have a look at Rons Cycle Plus and go to the shop now tab in the menu for some very affordable prices on bicycles.
You can get healthy with bike riding by riding to work, ride solo, ride with friends or family or ride for weekend adventures. There are various types of bikes you can mold your riding pleasures with. There are regular pedal bikes, e-bikes or tandem bikes and they all will serve as a way of gradually getting healthy. And all of them can be purchased at a reasonable price.
So, Get To Pedaling
You will find that after you ride to work awhile people will start to know you and respect you on the route you ride and that is a good feeling within itself. And your body will appreciate you keeping it tuned up in the process. Then riding your bike to work will just be part of your daily routine and you won’t even think of it as exercising.
