The Benefits of Riding Bikes

   Posted by: navi007   in Health and Fitness

I recently sold my car and haven’t found one I want to buy yet.  Since I don’t have a car, I’ve been riding my bicycle quite a bit.  Of course I’m not making too long of trips, but I’m taking the bike to the store and I’ve been riding it to work which is only a few miles away.  It’s actually been pretty nice now that it’s spring time and I can enjoy the weather and the outdoors.  When I first started riding around it had been a while since I had ridden any kind of distance on my bike and I got worn out pretty quickly.  My legs would burn and I could hardly breathe when I tried to go fast.

Now, less than a week later I can tell my legs are getting stronger and I can go farther without running out of breath.  I knew riding bikes was good exercise, which is probably the reason I avoided it for so long!  What I didn’t realize is that it’s not torture.  It’s a great way to keep in shape and get outside more.  I think I’m going to take my time before getting another car.  I know I need one eventually, but for now I’ll continue to enjoy the exercise and openness of the bike.  You can find out more about the benefits of this and other types of exercise by contacting my chiropractor Chandler AZ for information.
