Cycling to work is great for your health! Nothing is worse that sitting still so why not start pedaling about town. This will be the new solution to all your woes!
Cycling isn’t difficult. However motorists still rule the roads. Fair enough, when it’s raining you hardly fancy mounting your bike and prefer instead to take the car. However think about changing your habits as cycling is great for your physical as well as your mental health. What’s more it is better for the environment!
1/ Avoid stressing about finding a parking place
Even if you don’t realise it, driving is stressful. Becoming impatiently frustrated when you are made considerably late as you take time to find a parking place is only one example. Perhaps you’ve never heard it but illnesses often start in the head… By bike, you can park as close to your destination as you want. You only need a tree, a post or an arch (as well as a good bike lock!).
2/ Exercising without realising
By mounting your bike everyday to travel to work, whether it is 10 minutes or half an hour, it will help you stay in good shape. When you cycle you are exercising without even realising it. What’s more there is a purpose !
3/ A more toned body
If you exercise everyday you will become more toned. Cycling is no exception to this rule.
4/ Look after your heart for the long term
Cycling is a cardio sport as long as you don’t have a powerful electric bike to pull you along or you cycle like an old biddy!
5/ Feel better
You always feel better after having pedaled a few miles to get to or come back from work, than being sedentary in your car the whole journey. Don’t slam your car door any longer. Hop on your bike and you’ll feel ten times better!
6/ Relieve problems with joints
Arthritis and knee problems made us stiff and robotic. Relieve the pain by cycling! There is nothing better than this easy going sport to relieve joint problems.
