1. It’s good for your health.
Let’s start with the obvious: cycling keeps you fit and strong like no other sport. It activates all the major muscle groups without putting too much strain onto any of them and has the additional benefit of you always setting the pace yourself. It can be built up from a very-low intensity exercise to a demanding workout – like a personal gym you can take with you everywhere you go.
Muscle strength, however, is not the only health benefit you get from cycling. It’s good for the joints, for the heart, for your posture… It helps you burn calories and even reduces stress levels. There is research out there that shows that cycling helps prevent diabetes and certain types of cancer. Unsure about what should be your first step towards longevity? The solution is simple: buy a bike!
