Re-Learning to Ride


Recommended Posts

Mostly I'm posting for encouragement. I haven't ridden a bike in almost 30 years. I bought one last summer but it's sitting in the garage. I need motivation to get on it and get back to learning how to balance. It's hard to be motivated when it's so hot out right now. 

 

Ideas for motivation?

I have been cycling for a few years now, and I completely enjoy it. I think the best motivation to start cycling once again is to think about the benefits of cycling, which are quite a lot. Everything we do in our daily lives has a benefit and a purpose and the same applies to cycling also. 

 

The benefits of cycling are it helps to improve your concentration. While cycling you need to focus and keep your mind, eyes, hands and feet in the right directions, in this way you improve your concentration. It is the easiest exercise to tone your muscles and increase your stamina. The muscles of the feet and thighs gets toned quite quickly by cycling regularly. The best advantage is cycling helps to reduce the risk of heart related problems and keeps you fit and strong.

Go for some quick rides in the morning or evening when it's not so hot. And if you need motivation you can download an exercise app to your smartphone (such as Runtastic or Endomondo) where you can track your biking progress, such as distance travelled and how many calories you've burned. 

 

Good luck! :)
