Benefits of Cycling

While on our amazing trip to Vancouver, B.C., we biked through Stanley Park and throughout the downtown areas. Cycling gave us a close-up overview of the whole city while moving our bodies and enjoying the outdoors. Add biking to your fitness plan and reap the benefits.

Easy and Low Impact - Biking can be enjoyed by people of all ages. That makes it a perfect match for family fun or socializing with friends. Once you learn, you always remember how to combine balancing and pedaling. Riding a bike is a great way for beginners to start an exercise program. It is low impact, so there is less stress on achy joints and can be a fun way to ease into moving your body regularly. The low-impact aspect is also great for athletes recovering from an injury.

Fits into your Day - Riding your bike to work can be a great way to fit an exercise routine into your work week. Many people report that the ride home from work is a welcome decompress session that helps them transition to evening activities. Riding to school with your children can be a great way to model a healthy lifestyle. When you cycle to the gym, you arrive having already completed your warm-up and cardio sessions!

Can Vary Intensity - Bicycling is very versatile. You can do a fun family ride, stopping often and talking with your children. Biking can be a relaxing way to enjoy the outdoors on your own and notice details in your neighborhood that you might miss if you were driving. Or cycling can be an intense workout, challenging cardio limits and strength.
