10 Reasons To Take Up Cycling
1. It’s Fun
The most important fact is, that cycling is good fun.
The bike has repeatedly been voted the most popular invention of the past 200 years. Cycling is simply great fun.
2. Faster Travelling
A bike can offer the quickest method of transport.
For example, in London average speeds on roads amounts to a paltry 9mph (this is actually lower than 100 years ago!).
Even a moderately fit cyclist will have no trouble in beating cars, buses and the underground.
3. Saves Money
A good bike costs £200; a reasonable car will cost £5,000.
With oil prices rising through the roof, cycling can also save significantly on petrol costs.
The majority of car journeys are for distances less than 5 miles. These distances are easily cycleable.
Cycling gives a sense of freedom that sitting in a car can never give.
Cycling also gives greater freedom about where to go. Many towns are encouraging pedestrian only areas.
With a bike you can go down narrow lanes, on canal paths and often cut corners that you cannot do in a car.
4. Lose Weight
Cycling is a low impact aerobic exercise and is an excellent way of losing weight.
It is also a lot cheaper than gaining membership to the gym.
6. Health Benefits
Cycling is good for the heart and can help reduce incidence of heart disease, one of the biggest killers amongst developed countries.
7. Relieve Stress
If you work in an office or have a stressful job, exercise such as cycling can be a powerful way to help reduce stress and take your mind off many problems.
But, also vigorous exercise is an effective way to take your mind off trifling problems.
Everyone cycles, it is the great social leveller.
Rich or poor, old person or little kid, everyone can enjoy cycling.
9. Reduce Global Warming
Cycling creates no pollution or Carbon dioxide emission.
It provides a powerful way to help make a meaningful contribution to reducing pollution and preventing future global warming.
10. Less Accidents
Unlike Cars, bikes are not lethal machines. In the UK, over 3,000 people a year die on the roads due to car accidents.
An accident involving bikes may cause injury, but very rarely will a bike be the cause of a fatal accident.
