Why You Should Get Out There on Your Bicycle This Spring
With all the snow in winter, you had to keep your bike tucked away. But now that it’s all gone, it’s time to get out there and embrace spring by riding your bike. Why is this the best season for cycling?
– The weather is glorious
No more snow and temperatures that are in the sweet-spot between hot and cold make this weather the most blissful of all for riding your bike. You’ll be more inclined to keep up this healthy habit too when you surround yourself in nature’s beautiful spring bounty too!
– It gives you something to do with friends and family
Why gather to be couch potatoes? Instead, have everyone bring their bikes and go for a ride. Plan a route and maybe a healthy picnic at the end too. It will be much more memorable than watching another movie.
– You’ll be more motivated to keep riding on
Because it infuses your mind and body with good feelings, cycling in spring will keep you motivated to continue. When you set this routine now, you’ll keep riding even when it’s hotter.
– You can’t beat that vitamin D
Cycling in spring is a wonderful way to get more vitamin D naturally. Make sure that you put on sunscreen though to protect your skin while receiving the benefits!
– It’s a more fun way to fitness
Let’s face it…not everyone enjoys going to the gym for workouts. And the same routine gets boring. But riding your bike can be interesting every day. You can try new trails and see new things which will give you incentive to keep pedaling.
– You’ll feel free
Winter tends to make everyone feel trapped and constrained. But on your bike, you can cycle anywhere you want to go at any time. While it’s a great workout, it’s also an escape for your mind, and mental health is just as important to keep in good shape!
– You’ll be healthier overall
Regular exercise is essential for good health. It keeps you from being too sedentary, gives your muscles the motion they need, builds endurance, and even helps your immune system. And out in the fresh air on your bike, you will want to keep going. In spring, the temperatures are on your side so use them to your advantage!
But don’t forget that cycling is a sport. Whether you’re a beginner, advanced, or you simply just like riding around for fun, you can cause injuries to yourself if you’re not careful. A great way to avoid them is to make sure you have someone in your corner caring for your health.
Start and end with massages, treat old injuries with the help of a physiotherapist, or get lined up right with a chiropractor. No need to pedal on over for your appointment…In Your Home Therapy comes to you with licensed professionals to help you with your health!
