Get on Your Bike and Ride!

Health

By Annette Poliwka

Did you know that May is BIKE Month?

When was the last time you rode your ? to an outdoor event?

What about to work?

Around the block?

Riding a bike has many environmental benefits including the fact that it is a pollution-free mode of transport and bikes reduce the need to build, service and dispose of cars.

Cycling just 10km each way to work (about 6 miles) would save 1500 kg of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions each year.

Not only are you more active when you ride a bike, but you are also happier.

Yes, HAPPIER!

Additionally, riding a bike has been proven to improve your sex life as well as decrease your risk of cancer. That makes me happier just thinking about it!

Go ahead, give it a try. Pull out the bike, pump the tires with some air, and grab a helmet!

There are plenty of bike-friendly activities, especially this month that you can ride to!

So get out there! And I bet you that you’ll be smiling with every peddle.
