Here at this bike shop Gosford, we love to encourage the locals to get out and about on their bikes. Here are a few thoughts from Nuala Rees in her article on The Benefits of Bike Riding.
Biking is one of the best exercises to lose weight, and not end up with the dreaded ‘flab’, often left as a result of other forms of weight loss. The muscles of the whole body are toned evenly.
There are numerous benefits to bike riding, the principal one being a health issue, reducing the risk of heart disease. A study of over 10,000 people found that those who cycle 20 miles or more a week, are less likely to have Heart problems. The risk of Heart attack is reduced by 50%. Doctors say that to benefit from exercise, you should maintain your heart rate at an elevated level for at least 20 minutes, this can be achieved by bicycling.
There have been some studies showing that moderate exercise, such as Biking may strengthen the immune system and may increase activity against cancer cells.
Biking helps stimulate the small muscles of the vertebrae, which is normally difficult to do. By using up fat reserves when Biking, blood cholesterol can be stabilized. This is a very important factor, as due to our normally sedentary lifestyle, raised levels appear to be on the increase.
Regular Bike rides can also reduce high blood pressure, reducing the risk of stroke.
Due to the pressure of work, Family and Financial worries, we all end up stressful, tense and anxious. Biking really helps. The uniform movement is calming. The wind in your hair, the sun on your face, wonderful.
Biking can be a solitary activity or a very social one. There are many clubs and groups that usually are happy to welcome new members.
It is good to see that local Communities in most countries are building Biking into Transit plans.
What are you waiting for? Get on your bicycle, keep in shape and reduce the risk of Heart Disease.
