The Wind In Your Face Can Provide a Sense of Freedom

By Tom Herrin

There is nothing like the feel of being in control of your own life.  It provides a great sense of independence.  Most people aspire to be in control but many times have no real idea as to how to make it happen.  It actually can happen in small increments.  Those little things can empower people to be the manager of their own destiny.  For people who do some bicycle riding as a way of getting exercise or an outlet, they probably have a pretty good handle on just what that independence feels like.  For those looking for that opportunity to break out on their own, bike riding may be just the thing.

It Is Good Exercise

Riding a bicycle is a great way to burn calories and get some leg work.  Normally, the hardest thing to get used to is the seat.  That can be taken care of easily with a large selection of styles and types of seats that can be purchased as replacements.  For those who are dealing with a little age, usually the wider the better in a seat.  The other thing to consider is the height of the handlebars.  They are also likely to be adjustable.  Once all the adjustments have been made, the riding is pretty basic.  It only takes a little practice, and the ride can seem manageable and attainable.  It is also generally a low impact exercise, meaning there is less wear on the knees and feet.

It Can Build Stronger Bones

Anytime people do some kind of exercise that involves bearing any kind of weight, the bones can be strengthened.  Bike riding is another way the force of the pedaling can do this same thing.  The natural resistance of the bike can be a great way of accomplishing this with very little high stress exercise.  Increasing bone density is one of the biggest concerns of people as they age.

It Helps With Ordinary Activities

Riding a bicycle is one of those things that can carry over to everyday life.  It can improve coordination, endurance, and general muscle control.  If you are looking for some kind of activity that can provide a lot of bang for the buck, bicycle riding may be just the ticket.  You can find a very affordable bike for starters that will do just fine.  Give it a try, and you may find some simple pleasure that has been long since gone from your life.
