“The bicycle is a simple solution to the worlds most complicated problems.”
Whether you choose to take up cycling as a sport, for the environment or to improve your health, it can be one of the best decisions you will make in life. Some key benefits:
1. Health💪🏾: Exercise is a key component of staying healthy, cycling helps to build muscle, improves heart health and can even help to reduce your risk of cancer.
2. Environment: Lets be honest, cars are not good for the environment. They are one of the largest contributors to man made greenhouse gas emissions. Because bicycles do not run on gas, they are an environmentally sustainable alternative to cars.
3. Kinder on your pocket 💰: Everyone wants to save money. Owning a bicycle is considerably cheaper than owning a car that comes with parking, insurance and maintenance fees.
You might just find that the key consequence to take on cycling is how much fun you will have!
