Different people love cycling for different reasons. Where do we even begin? We'll start with the simple pleasure of being outside enjoying fresh air and the great outdoors. It's a great way of escaping everyday stress. Bikes are not just a physical escape but also a mental getaway. As Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (author of the Sherlock Holmes novels) wrote, “When the spirits are low, when the day appears dark, when work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having, just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road, without thought on anything but the ride you are taking.”
We couldn't have said it better ourselves.
For many riders, it's about bonding with like-minded friends and family to share in an experience that they enjoy together. Riding bikes together naturally leads to great conversations and many have made life long friends with people they met on the road.
Some people ride bikes as transportation to reduce their carbon footprint on the environment, save money and beat traffic. Riding ebikes has many advantages and these may be the lesser known benefits.
A good majority of people ride as a form of exercise. Cycling has been proven to be great for cardiovascular health. It's low impact and a lot less prone to injuries than other types of exercise such as running, weight training, and crossfit. However, some people are intimidated by cycling because they don't think they are fit enough to ride a bike, that they don't have that look of a skinny cyclist wearing lycra , or that they don't own an expensive carbon bike.
We're here to say that everyone is a cyclist regardless of their age, ability, or fitness.
