Traveling around the world, I noticed that the bikes is became more common as a form of recreation or as a main means of transport. It does not matter who is the layer of the population concerned, starting from students to the director, the case is the former mayor of London, their daily tasks and distance perform by cycling. It seems to me that people are slowly realizing the benefits of this means of transport: no crowds, park where ever you want, preferably assemble your bike and take in hand, a great form of recreation and most importantly saving. In this article we will deal with cycling as a form of recreation, lifestyle and benefits to the human body.
I’m glad to see that people are more and more riding bicycles, especially in larger cities. An excellent example is Switzerland, where despite the hilly and mountainous parts, each part of the country is crisscrossed by cycling paths, so if you have the stamina and time you do not need a car. Although it all depends on the weather conditions, but today under the onslaught of industrialization and production of new materials and types of clothing biking is available and possible everywhere. Thinner tires wider tires, a smaller or larger frame, larger or smaller transfer, material preparation, now it’s all available to make it easier to overcome the field in which you are driving. For those with a little poorer fitness level or high age there is the help of electric motors and easier driving and mastering the climb.
As a form of recreation cycling firstly presents an enjoyment of nature and terms, as well as activity in the fresh air, which is very important for all body functions. Strengthening the lower extremities, especially the quadriceps and calf, shaping muscle, fat loss, weight loss, accelerate metabolism, improve endurance and stamina, improved cardiovascular and respiratory organs, improve blood circulation, reduce mental stress, by time make reduction in heart rate at rest – the heart works slower, more efficient and more productive, the heart muscle makes stronger …all of this is advantages for this type of activity. With bike distance that can pass are truly impressive.
Depending on your condition and fitness level, it is best to ride a bike every day for one to two hours. In such a long process after a certain time (after 20 minutes of activity) there will be degradation of fats. With a lower pulse, 130 beats per minute, drive will be longer and degradation of fat better. If is pulse higher around 160 beats per minute the speed is higher, the ability to quickly get tired is more possible, shorter time for degradation of fats, reduce your speed and pulse will go down. Speed that is recommended is about 20 km / h.
Get a reliable bike, price is irrelevant because it is all in the legs and endurance, in the case of a long drive need to get the bike windscreens, because after the first hour you will feel the pain of sitting, get a comfortable seat, sunglasses for insects, a bottle of water with you always, and of course music that will break the monotony of pedaling. And a very important thing in society is riding a bike is always interesting, because cycling is a collective sport!
