Enjoy The Outdoors
And, remember when families used to drive across the country every summer? Well, you can do that on your bike too, and feel a lot better than you would if you were cooped up in a car for 8 hours a day. Or maybe you'll never leave a 100-mile radius from your home, but you'll have a much greater appreciation for your surroundings when your ride.
These motorcycle-like speeds are thrilling, and unlike motorcycling, you don't have to maneuver a heavy bike around or deal with additional clothing and the ever-present smell of gasoline. Also, because you, and not a motor, are responsible for these speeds, you'll enjoy an endorphin rush that you could never get driving. It's comparable to that of skiing or snowboarding except that you don't need to go to a resort and buy a lift pass to get to the start of your run. Your fun starts out your door — it's exhilarating!
Shape Your Body
Cycling is also the best choice for people who are rehabbing from injuries — especially knee injuries. Cycling is low-impact and easy on the joints. That's why doctors regularly recommend riding as a replacement for running and skiing. We recommend it whether you're recovering from an injury or just wanting to get back in shape or have more fun.
Pick Your Pace
Don't believe us? Try to run or swim at a heart rate of 100 beats a minute. It's nearly impossible. Now try to ride at 100 beats a minute. No problem. Because it's easier to ride at a low intensity, there is also more variety of levels in between very easy and very hard intensity. That variety makes cycling more suited to a wider array of athletes and allows every rider more pacing choices while riding.
Cycling Is Social
Exercise As Transport
