Riding a bike is fun. I remember when I was a kid, I loved riding the bike. At first, it was challenging for me to balance the bike and kick the pedal at once to make it run, but the moment I made the wheels rool was the best feeling, and after that, I couldn’t stop riding it every day.
Although bicycles are not just made for kids to have fun. Riding a bike has a lot of benefits and advantages for us. There are also other reasons why some people become cyclists or just simply like riding their bikes even if they are no longer kids anymore.
Here are some reasons why one goes biking
A good way to become healthy
Yes, riding a bike might seem to be a hobby for some, but for others, it’s a good way to exercise. It’s good for your heart. It’s a good way also to lose weight and tone your muscles. Biking also makes your endurance better, and it boosts your immune system. It’s also cheaper compared to going to the gym.
Saves your money
Save gas money and ride to work. Aside from keeping you physically healthy, biking can also keep your savings healthy. Instead of spending lots of money for bus, taxi or subway fare and also buying gas for your car, with a bike you do not need to worry more about that. You don’t also need a license when you ride a bike, so it less hassle as you do not need to pay for driving lessons to get a license. Also, when you are a motorist and you prefer mostly to ride the bike, it saves you a lot of money from the maintenance of your car or motorcycle.
Not only do you save money, but you can also save time. Riding a bike can rid you of getting stuck in traffic. It also does not need to follow too many traffic rules when on the street. You can easily slip your bike in between traffic jams or take the shortest and fastest route without having to worry if the road is too narrow or crowded.
Less dangerous and hazardous
Riding a bike is a safer way to travel compared to traveling by car or a motorcycle. It has fewer chances of getting into accidents on the road. Just make sure you keep a bike torque wrench with you at all times in case any issues come up during the ride.
Aside from the health benefits, you also save the environment. Bikes are very eco-friendly, whether it is a mountain bike or an electrical one. It doesn’t produce smoke, so it does not contribute to the pollution – thus lessens it.
Biking is very convenient since it doesn’t require a lot of maintenance compared with other vehicles. You also don’t need to worry about parking spaces, parking fees, or getting a ticket for parking on the wrong side of the road. Bikes also have fewer chances of being carnapped or stolen, so it is safe to park them anywhere with just a bike lock on the wheels.
Form of relaxation and pleasure
Riding a bike is a good way to have fun and, at the same time, get some relaxation. You can enjoy nature when you are riding a bike by taking it somewhere that can give you a sense of peace and relaxation. It can also be a form of pleasure by going on an adventure or joining cycling competitions. Many people nowadays become cyclists to travel miles and miles and do marathons while riding their bicycles. However, others like to seek some thrill by going out on a biking adventure or biking trek with other cyclists.
