When you live in a city, particularly in the big one, you’re confronted by a lot of problems. No wonder, there are advantages of living in the cities, but because our ancestries didn’t live in a city, we always look for natural and wide areas instinctively. We need to feel more free in safe places and if you’re a cyclist you always need safe bike ways to cycle mind at peace.
Like most of you, I mean who has a bicycle and ride their bikes, I like cycling so much. Particularly, after starting to write here I’m trying to cycle on daily basis and love it more everyday. So, I wanted to share you why I like cycling below;
How to make cycling as your habit? We, of course can get into the habit of something in time, but over the years it becomes difficult to do it. For instance I wanted to get cycling routine so that I made a challenge for cycling 5 miles a day.
I thought that if I can push myself as possible as I can, it can be easier to have cycling habit. I’m 37 and not have as much energy as I was in 20s. Nevertheless I feel it’ll be possible. Although it will take time, I can make a cycling habit.
We all know that female cyclers are less than males in number. According to some datas women pedals one third as much as men do for the U.S. In European countries it’s a bit more, like %49 in Germany and %55 in Netherlands.
Beside these exceptions women could be averse to do it. It’s an option. But there must be reasons why they don’t want to cycle as much as men do
I remember when I had my first bicycle. It was in 1989 when I’m 9 years old. I wasn’t able to ride a bicycle yet. But I was eager to learn it. Because there were many kids to have bicycles and they can ride on.
My father was the only person who works in our family and the days could be tough sometimes related to money. So, buying a bicycle to me was a little bit difficult.
Last week I subscribed to the mail list of biketours.com and today I saw an email in my inbox from biketours says about the quiz which defines your travel style. I don’t know whether you saw this before or not. I didn’t. I made the quiz and the result was that I’m the explorer.
I’m learning day by day how to ride for a challenge and what should I do next time. When I was cycling since I’ve started my 5 miles a day challenge, I wasn’t listening music, I was just focusing to ride on. I don’t know why, I think I believed that if I focus to cycle I can success it better, but of course it’s a bullshit. Yes I have a goal but I have to enjoy it also.
Today I made the distance more than the other days and before I went outside with my bicycle I got my earphones for listening music. Thanks to music it was not boring to get about 10 miles. So, I decided to make a song list for cycling. I’m not going to cycle without music from now on.
Recently I’m trying to regulate my cycling routine. Accordingly, I’ve started a challenge by myself. I thought that if I can add some other daily routine alongside cycling, it would be an extra motivation to me.
So, I’m also doing sit-up, push-up, walking and running. While I’m doing my daily routines I’m following my development via a couple of apps.
There is a kind of person in the life who lives regularly, you know that person, erhh, I’m not him/her! I need a dose of motivation to move, actually If I had, I can lose my motivation easily. Therefore, I decided to use mobile apps because they push me to do these excercises. I like it so that it’s fun and following the changes lifts you up.
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.
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;
