"Ride as much or as little, as long or as short, as you feel. But ride."
When was the last time you rode a bicycle? Bicycling is a low-impact, fun and healthy exercise for children, adults, and seniors. According to the Harvard Health Letter, exercise provides a joint-friendly aerobic exercise that also triggers endorphins—the “happy” chemicals in your body that make you feel great.
It’s good for the bones, too! Hopping onto your bike for a cycling adventure builds muscle and bone density, enhancing the ability to maintain your balance while performing daily tasks.
There are numerous options for seamlessly incorporating biking into your lifestyle. Below, are suggestions to shift your biking mojo into high gear.
Instead of hopping into the car to perform local errands, grab your bike instead.
Before starting an exercise regimen, it’s always best to check with your doctor first. You also want to be certain that you are equipped with the right equipment and clothing before embarking on your first biking adventure.
