Challenge: Day #02
Today, the weather was a tiny bit windy but it still became hard to pedal. I should make an extra effort in such weather. Even so, I could reached the 5 miles goal.
I’ve cycled 5,73 miles that’s very enough for me at the beginning of this challenge.
I wanna write here some notable ews about the world of cycling as far as possible. under the category of notable news. I’m not a professional about it but I thought it would be nice to write here when I’m learning and developing myself.
So, the first news is about a bicycle which is just 11 pounds (5 kg). Yes you didn’t hear wrong! It’s just 11 pounds it’s made from carbon fibre with 95% ratio. That’s why it is such light. Beside the simplicity (in appearence) there are some significant specifications like shock absorption which pushes your ride comfort to the top of maximization.
Challenge: Day #01
This is the first day of my “5 miles a day challenge”. I’ve cycled above 5 miles, so I accomplished the goal for today but there are many days ahead.
As the first day, it was a little bit exhausting cause the weather was a little bit warm. I didn’t choose any special route, just cycled around my house. I’m gonna try to discover new places also to make the activity more fun.
I’m mostly riding on my bike for commuting, but I’ve decided to make this activity much more fun.
Even though bicycle commuting is very enjoyable it becomes a routine day by day. Because when you’re riding your bike while on the road to your work for instance, you can also compete with traffic if you live in a crowded city. So, after a couple of weeks you lose your pleasure of biking. I mean your awareness about biking becomes less in time. I want to be aware of biking when I’m riding on it. I like it.

[su_highlight background=”#fff099″]The crankset (in the US) or chainset (in the UK), is the component of a bicycle drivetrain that converts the reciprocating motion of the rider’s legs into rotational motion used to drive the chain or belt, which in turn drives the rear wheel.[/su_highlight][su_custom_gallery source=”media: 167,168,169,170,173″ link=”lightbox”]

Once you have it you’ll be responsible with your bicycle’s care. You should make it regularly beside protecting it against many negative effects. When you’re making bike maintenance you can make some works by yourself but you should leave complex things to your bicycle mechanic if you are not good at these stuff. I don’t claim the informations below are the bicycle maintenance tips, but every bike rider should know these.
As many of you know that obesity is one of the most popular problem in our era. Both malnutrition and unhealthy living conditions can cause obesity. A big part of the world particularly developed countries struggle with this problem. USA is one of these countries, which suffers from this issue. According to statistics adult obesity rates exceed above 20% in all states in the United States. Once you became obese it becomes difficult to lose weight.
Last year I’ve decided to buy a bicycle to go to my work by it so that I was bored to put up with traffic. It is super comfortable to go elsewhere with the car, I know, but in a traffic jam it can be terrible mostly even if you’re using the public transportation. I thought that if I have a bicycle I can make bicycle commuting. However I had a problem; My apartment is on the 4th floor and on top of that its stairs are prominently narrow. Our lift is also too small to carry a bicycle. So, it would be hard to carry the bike twice a day in this apartment somehow. Then I started to think about folding bike. It is cute, portable, in small size…, but what about performance?
There are many things in our daily life to make us feel better but most of it difficult to do due to the city rush. I guess cycling possibly be one of the most beneficial activities to do easily. It is easy to have and fun to ride. I’ve listed the 8 benefits of cycling below;
When I was a child I loved biking like many of you but I left it over years. I don’t know why. Yes, I was riding the bike sometimes but it was not a regular action same as before. I grew up and moved to the big city which was growing up with me. So it became difficult to ride a bicycle with each passing day. Luckily the city I live tries to support (whether it’s not enough..just tries..) people who love to bike. So I should have taken the action.
