8 Reasons to Start Riding a Bike

riding a bikeSpring is not far off and very soon you will see many people riding a bike. It’s worth to join them and now we will give you the 8 reasons why.

  1. Weight control
    Scientists of the University of Surrey (England) found that it’s enough riding a bike for an hour, and, not at a furious speed, and you can say “good-bye!” to more than two hundred calories.
  2. Strong heart and joints
    The habit of riding a bike has a positive effect on the “engine” of our body – the heart. Regular riding helps stabilize blood pressure and improve blood circulation throughout the body.
  3. Healthy sleep
    If you do not plan to go to bed for more than 4 hours, do not ignore the bike ride. Let it be only thirty minutes. The energy that will be received during this time will be enough to sleep soundly and sweetly.
  4. Feeling young and happy
    After a while, good mood is automatically displayed on your face and body: the skin looks elastic, and the forms acquire attractive outlines.
  5. No stress
    Dimensional riding a bike is like meditation after a hard day. Problems that have accumulated, tasks that need to be carried out as quickly as possible, little disagreement with family, friends or colleagues. All this can easily be forgotten by sitting on a bicycle.
  6. Portion of happiness
    Biking is not only good to finish the day, but also to start. A small bike ride will cheer you up in the morning, and also give a portion of serotonin and dopamine, the so-called “happiness hormones”.
  7. Fun with friends and family
    You will feel the need to accomplish this point when you cross 30 with a plus. Then you will understand that the city with its skyscrapers is stuffy and boring. Why it is not a reason to take a big company and take your iron horses from garages, find a green area outside the city and make a small trip?
  8. Minimal harm to the environment
    And for your wallet and time. After all, you do not have to buy gasoline, and you will arrive faster to the place of work than on a bus or tram which for a long time can stand in the jam. And as for ecology, such small trips on a two-wheeled one is your small contribution to the purity of the whole planet.
