Smoothie Essentials Blends support a healthy and active lifestyle.
One very trendy form of exercise these days is an updated swing on an age-old piece of machinery; the bicycle.
Various reasons for biking will include the fact that with a properly adjusted seat it’s easier on the knees than jogging and it’s a social event you can do with friends, not to mention the fact that cycling to work is more ‘green’ than driving the car.
Biking can be casual and still be brisk enough to burn the calories and exercise the muscles. Especially for those of us who do not feel the urge to join a health club, biking to and from school or work is an excellent option, allowing exercise to be the fringe benefit instead of the object, because on a bike the journey is the destination.
As with any form or exercise or food, excess can be harmful. Cycling has been linked to various injuries. If you feel muscle pain, joint pain or numbness, this can be a sign you’ve exceeded the safe level.
Bicycles can be used for transportation, recreation and sport.
Cycling can include using a unicycle, a tricycle, a quadracycle and various human-powered vehicles.
Cycles are a means of transportation employed by various police departments due to their high maneuverability and the ability to travel on pedestrian-heavy roads as well as narrow paths.
Across the globe, it is not unusual for letter carriers to navigate their way around town on a bike.
A single-speed beach cruiser is a good choice for flat, easy terrain.
A multi-speed cycle is the best choice for all other types of roads where inclines or rough terrain might be encountered.
Accessories can include front and back lights, reflectors, bells or horns, child seats, baggage racks and water-bottle cages.
Safety equipment can also include a helmet, gloves, protective padding and specially-designed brightly colored apparel.
For the highly adventurous, there are also cycling computers that include GPS.
It is not unusual for most elementary schools to include bike-riding and bike-safety events during the course of a school year.
Bicycle laws are in many cases similar to vehicle laws: stay at the side of the road traveling with the flow of traffic, stop for stop signs, use hand signals when turning, etc.
Ride safe, think safety, and make yourself visible.
