Cycling – Safety Tips and Benefits

Hello FitFam,
Hope you all are enjoying your Sunday!

Today I am here to talk about cycling. Being an effective workout and means of transportation, the world would be a better place if we would all cycle to work and cycle our worries away. Although, before you begin your journey you must follow the right measures. Consider the following safety tips:

●  Always wear a helmet.
●  Have your bike lights on when cycling in the dark
●  Be careful while taking a turn
●  Keep a safe distance from heavy-duty vehicles

Follow the above to enjoy a happy and safe ride. Cycling offers many health benefits. If you’ve wondered what are they, here are some of the most popular ones.

Stronger Muscles: Cycling works on your core and leg muscles. While riding you need to sit upright and keep the bike in a certain position that demands core strength. You also put your leg muscles to use that all translates into stronger core and leg muscles.

Lean Legs: Regular cycling improves the functions in your lower body and strengthens your leg muscles without much stressing. It targets your quads, glutes, hamstrings, and calves, toning these muscles and making them leaner.

Increased Cardiovascular Fitness: Cycling strengthens the heart muscles and lowers resting pulse. Regular cycling reduces one’s susceptibility to cardiovascular diseases such as stroke, high blood pressure and heart attack. It is your way to aid heart protection.

Elevated Mood: Mental health conditions such as depression, stress and anxiety can be reduced by regular cycling. Having your focus on the road can aid concentration and take your mind away from the mental chatter. The effects of the exercise are positive and you will find yourself enjoying the ride. You certainly then are in a better mood.

Better Sleep: All the positive effects of cycling lead to better sleep. An improved mood, less stress and anxiety and positive heart health all lead to you getting a worry-less good night’s sleep.

Such are the benefits of cycling. It will put you in a better place and help you live a healthier life.
Also, this is our way to a greener planet. Switching to cycling will do good for you and society.
