1. It’s time to get back on that bicycle and start cycling your way to a longer life! 

Just as walking is excellent for your overall health, so is cycling! Cycling is becoming more and more popular as a means of transportation. All around the world, they are introducing easy-to rent bike stations so you can bike and go! That is fantastic as it gets people moving more than they would if they were just driving around, and it’s way better for the environment too. Not only will you have a better environment around you by cycling, but it has significant impacts on your health also. Experts completed a study on French cyclists in the Tour de France, which revealed just that.

They have been shown to live longer than their peers who do not cycle. The study took data from 786 French cyclists who had participated in the race at least once. It’s time to get that helmet and go out for a cycle. Don’t let your bicycle just collect dust. Put it to good use. Cycling can be a competitive sport, but it can also be an enjoyable way to get around. If you make exercise enjoyable, you’ll be more likely to do it frequently. Give it a try and see what it’s like. You could even invite friends to go on a cycling outing and make a day out of it.
