3 Reasons to Start Cycling
Rebecca Rusch / 6-17-2016
1. Cycling is a forever sport and ANYONE can do it.
You learned to ride a bike as a kid. If you could do it when you were 5, you can do it now. It’s one of the few sports that spans generations and you can do it til a ripe old age. I know lots of athletes who found cycling because they were recovering from a knee or hip injury. It’s the first activity and physical therapist will usually let you do.
2. It’s Moving Meditation
When it’s time to unplug, there’s nothing like pedaling, especially on a mountain bike, to clear your head of nonsense and bring your attention into the present moment. You can’t think about your finances, your to-do list, picking the kids up while you’re navigating single track on two wheels. Cycling takes concentration and focus. Physically moving your legs and pumping your heart frees your head space.
