Here are some top reasons why you should start riding bikes:
- Save $$$ on gas! If you have to get to a location nearby or is willing to bike at a distance, then every new opportunity you take to bike somewhere will save you money on gas!
- You get to exercise! At the same that you are transporting yourself, you are also actively moving your legs and burning off calories!
- Sightseeing! You can enjoy viewing your neighborhood from a different perspective and take in the sights at a slower pace.
- TIP: Always remember that your safety comes first! Anytime you plan on riding your bicycle, remember to wear a helmet and turn on your lights/wear a neon traffic uniform, if you are riding at night.
