Riding your bike every day may sound like a lot of work, or even exhausting. But in reality, it's good for the body and soul, as well as the environment, so what are you waiting for?
There are tons of health benefits related to biking, and it might make your commute a little less stressful, saving you from the frustration you might have when you’re stuck in traffic. Or you might learn to enjoy being able to spend a little extra time outdoors. Best of all, riding your bike can be just plain fun! Skip the car and try biking to school or work tomorrow. Enjoy the scenery, get some exercise and help the planet at the same time!
Getting daily exercise from an activity like riding a bike can increase your energy and even boost your mood. Studies have also shown that exercise can decrease stress levels, something that can affect how well you do in school if you’re a student. For adults, exercise can be a factor in how happy and productive you are at work. Plus, riding your bike to school or work is a nice thing to do for the environment, because it saves you or someone else from driving a car.
Reduce your carbon footprint and get some exercise by riding your bike to work or school. Don’t forget to keep yourself safe by wearing your helmet and following bike safety steps, like learning correct hand signals.
Maybe your school or job isn’t within easy biking distance from your home. Consider taking public transportation like the bus to work or school, and still get a little exercise by riding your bike to and from the bus stop.
