Aside from the proven physical benefits of riding a bike as your preferred mode of transportation, here are some sensible reasons why you should make the shift now:
Riding a bike is a great stress buster and mood booster. According to a recent survey, “Cyclists” are more mindful and easy-going compared to people who prefer to ride buses, cars, and other four-wheeled vehicles. It promotes relaxation and awareness through allowing bike-users the opportunity to breathe freely.
Bicycles are environment-friendly. They don’t emit smoke. They don’t contain Freon. They’re basically an extension of the rider.
Bicycles are cost-efficient and practical. Owning a 4-door vehicle with 4 to 8 passenger-capacity is great but, do you need it? If you’re single or live alone, riding a bike to work rather than taking your car with you and wasting money on fuel can bore a hole in your pocket. You can go fuel-free so you don’t have to worry about car payments and maintenance.
Bicycles are great space savers. Don’t have a garage? You don’t need one when you own a bike. There are compact or foldable bikes that you can shove into your backpack or hang on an empty wall.
Riding a bike has a lot of advantages but it never forget to take extra care and be safe!
