Riding a bike is a great way to exercise your muscles.Rather than being on a stationary treadmill
You're moving and the scenery is always changing. Get on your bike and go for a ride. Anywhere you choose to ride your bike would be fine. I recommend you ride your bike on a designated bike path if you have one nearby that you can use.Since I was just a kid, I always liked riding a bicycle.
riding a bike can be more fun.
I f you haven't been on a bike for awhile, take the time to first work out on a stationary bike if one is available to you. You could take some time to build up your leg muscles before you ride your bike on the street. Otherwise, you'll probably experience a case of muscle cramps, and having muscles cramps is certainly no picnic.
When you decide to purchase a bike, if you don't already own one, be sure to get a bike that is meant for the type of riding you expect to do. Getting a bike with no gear changes and 26- inch tires street tires can save you money if you're not expecting to ride the bike on a now and then schedule. You can purchase bikes in this category for under $100 in any discount store that sells bicycles in their sports department.
Inspect your bike before you get on and ride it. If you don't want to take a chance to have your brain matter spilled over the road, buy and wear a properly fitted helmet. If you're going to carry stuff on your bike, carry it in a carrier or a backpack. Make sure your tires are in good shape and definitely check your brakes. Don't try and be a showoff when riding your bike on a busy highway. Always keep two hands on the handles for better stability. Don't daydream when riding your bike. Keep an eye out for gravel, glass, potholes and people or animals running out in front of you. Try to make it a point to ride with someone when riding on open busy highways.
Riding a bike at dusk or at night requires extra caution. Be sure to wear bright reflective clothing and put reflective tape or a light on your bike. Remember, even if you have good eyesight and can see ahead of you, the other person may not see you. The rule is to ride in the same direction as the traffic is going.
