Bike riding. It almost seems like a lost art; something that only the little kids do. But what a great, low impact form of exercise it is!
Here are a few benefits of biking for exercise:
- IT’S MUCH EASIER ON YOUR LEGS, ANKLES, KNEES AND FEET THAN RUNNING.
- IT’S AN ACTIVITY YOU’LL BE ABLE TO DO THE REST OF YOUR LIFE.
- IT CAN REDUCE STRESS.
Biking may have been your means of freedom in those earlier years, but it’s also a great form of exercise no matter your age. If you’re a beginner, you should start a program where cycling is done at least 3 times a week. Doing it 2 times a week is also fine to start.
Gradual increase in speeds is an important aspect of fitness cycling. Cycling can also be strenuous to the body if you’re not used to it. The key towards successful fitness cycling is to be patient and not hurry in increasing your limits.

Move your body and enjoy the benefits of getting outdoors on your bike.
