Biking, also called bicycling or cycling, is the use of bicycles for transport, recreation, exercise or sport.  Regardless of your age or activity level, biking gives you the opportunity to reconnect with your inner child, strengthen muscles, improve stamina and practice mindfulness

Benefits:
  • Improves cardiovascular fitness
  • Decreases risk of coronary heart disease.
  • Good for your muscles: Riding a bike is great for toning and building your muscles, especially in the lower half of the body – your calves, your thighs, and your rear end. It’s also a great low-impact mode of exercise for those with joint conditions or injuries to the legs or hips, which might keep them from being active.
  • Good for your waistline: You can burn a lot of calories while biking, especially when you cycle faster than a leisurely pace, and cycling has been associated with helping to keep weight gain down. And cycling has the added benefit of ramping up your metabolism, even after the ride is over.
  • Improves coordination: Moving both feet around in circles while steering with both your hands and your body’s own weight is good practice for your coordination skills.
  • Strengthens immune system
  • Opportunity to practice mindfulness
  • Builds stamina
  • Encourages concentration and focus
  • Reconnecting with childhood via activity
  • Boosts self-confidence
  • Reduces anxiety and depression
