ENJOY THE RIDE!

We all love a weekend cruise around town or on the trails, but there’s so much more you can do on your bike than a simple Saturday ride. Broaden your horizons and incorporate your bike into other parts of your life — workdays and weekend adventures, meet cycling.

Commute by Bike!

Ditch your motor vehicle on your commute and try biking to work instead of driving. The cost of biking to work is a fraction of what people spend maintaining a car (think insurance, repairs, fuel . . . it adds up). Not only will you save big bucks on gas, you’ll get all the health and wellness benefits that come with biking. Commuting by bike helps improve your cardiovascular health, lowers blood pressure, builds muscle, and lets you get a little training in while you head to work or school. There’s a great mental health component to commuting by bike — the mood-boosting endorphins you’ll release while riding reduce stress and improve your sleep quality.


PRO TIP - If any of your colleagues commute by bike, ask to meet up on their route - you’ll have a riding buddy from day one!




MEET UP WITH FRIENDS

Get your friends involved in your cycling adventures. Riding with a group of people can be a great way to learn new things about the area you live in. You can share cycling tips and advice while bonding with your friends, and even get to know them better while you ride. Check out local online groups for meetup information or join us for a ride from the shop – we’re always eager to make new friends!

PRO TIP- Facebook, Meetup, RideSpot, and Strava are all excellent resources for finding group rides



CONNECT WITH NATURE

Ah, the great outdoors. There’s no better feeling than the wind in your hair as you descend a hill, flying past the landscape. Get more in touch with the natural scenery of the area on a ride – you may be surprised by how much you learn. Biking lets you cover more distance than you would on a walk or hike, so you can see more of the sights. If you have a mountain bike, check out some local trail systems - being immersed in nature while cruising on a bike is an unforgettable feeling. There’s no limit to what you can discover when riding in nature.

PRO TIP - Get your bike serviced before you head out on your adventure





FOCUS ON FITNESS

Sometimes, working out can feel like a chore if you find yourself in a rut at the gym. Taking a leisurely bike ride instead can reinvigorate your passion for exercise. Get back into the swing of things on the road or the trail, and let the fun of an exciting ride be your workout for the day. Cycling is a fantastic way to boost cardiovascular health, endurance, and overall strength. After a good bike ride, you’ll feel refreshed and accomplished, no gym membership required.

PRO TIP - You can get a great workout on any kind of bike - consider attaching it to an indoor trainer if you want a more regimented ride schedule.
