I love to hop on my bike and pedal to work–or anywhere else I need to go in my town —
as much as possible.
Riding a bicycle feels so good.
It’s actually exhilarating.
And it’s a great way to start the day with at least 30 minutes of aerobic exercise.
Cycling to work is a fantastic way to help keep your body healthy.
By cycling, you’ll also eliminate the need to spend so many hours in the gym before and after
work, saving you money and also time.
With many of us doing little more than sitting at a computer all day while at work, exercise is
becoming more and more important to living well.
It’s your body that keeps you going day in and day out, so it’s important to keep it in decent shape.
Those who exercise regularly know how good it can feel for the body, but they also know it feels
good for the mind.
Exercise can help clear your mind, distracting you from your worries and concerns.
It’s also a known fact that cardiovascular exercise can help with mental health, reducing both
anxiety and depression.
Do You Commute to Work?
If so, then you and I have something in common, along with tens of millions of others.
Many people choose to drive to work, while others may take a train or bus.
However, few choose to cycle.
But cycling could be the best choice of all.
It can be healthy for your wallet as well as your waistline.
Choosing to cycle to work is pretty much guaranteed to save you money, and who isn’t
looking to save money in these challenging times?
One reason is that you don’t have to pay for a car in the first place.
Secondly, you don’t have to pay any tax for your car.
Thirdly, you don’t have to pay for fuel and, well, you get the picture.
If you’re using any kind of transport other than your own two feet to get to work every day,
then you’ll almost certainly save money by traveling there by bicycle instead.
Plus, cycling is a more environmentally-friendly way to commute than driving.
