Riding your bike is always fun, but it's great to be reminded of the health benefits.
Cycling is associated with improved cardiovascular fitness, which can decrease your risk of a heart disease
Riding your bike is great for building and toning your muscles, especially the lower half of your body!
Who doesn't want to live longer?? Maintaining a healthy and fit lifestyle can increase your longevity.
While your feet pedal in circles and your hands control the steering, it's an excellent way to improve your coordination!
Physical activity of all kinds (we may be bias with cycling) can improve your mental health. Dopamine and endorphin levels increase during and after exercise.
Increased blood flow, intake of oxygen and overall circulation in your body helps boost your immune system!
However, let's not forget some other benefits:
- Reduced stress
- Save the planet
- Money in your pocket, not towards a fuel tank
- No traffic jams
- A quiet ride
- Family fun
- Cheaper than therapy
- Most of all, bicycling puts a giant smile on your face
Go riding this weekend, and take advantage of these benefits!
It's Your World, Ride It!
