What is it?

Riding a bike is a healthy, fun and low-impact activity for all ages. Whether you want to get moving outside or prefer the comfort of a stationary bike indoors, you can reap the benefits of cycling.

Why you should try cycling

The benefits of cycling include:

  • Improves heart health
  • Increases muscle strength in a low-impact way
  • Adds activity to your day in a time efficient way if you cycle to work or the store

Who is it for?

Cycling is a great activity for people of all ages. The fact that it is easy on your joints makes it a perfect activity for someone recovering from an injury or suffering from arthritis.

Where to go

Using your bicycle to explore your community is a wonderful way to spend time with family and friends. Many trails and roadways have incorporated bike-friendly pathways for your safety.

If you prefer a stationary bike, a local recreation facility may be a good option. And if you are looking for a challenge, a spin class might be more your speed.
