Written by Hannah M.  |  09. April 2012

Bicycling is a prime way to go green in the modern society. Bicycling is a manpowered, you-powered, activity. No gas or electricity needed. It’s all you, pumping your legs to achieve forward momentum, completely pollution free! Cycling is a great way to exercise. It reduces the risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, obesity and diabetes, all while building strength, endurance and the major muscle groups within the leg – the quadriceps, glutei, hamstrings and calves. Cycling is perfect for those who can’t participate in high impact sports. It is also said that cycling reduces your “real age,” lowering it by more than a decade, which is to say that your level of fitness will be equivalent to that of someone ten years younger than yourself. It seems like a win all around doesn’t it? So don’t wait any longer. Stop by any of the following bicycle shops and find the right bike for you.
