What You Need To Do On Bike Racing
They say things are easy “just like riding a bike.” But the truth...
Helmets are a Must
In biking and most form of riding sports, a helmet is the first safety gear on the list.
Today, bicycles are not the most popular transportation in the United States or even outside the country. Although it is very popular to certain countries such as China and some parts of Asia, still 20% of the total population is not quite a significant number.
Modernization and innovation are probably the most obvious reason why these humble bicycles are being ignored by most people. But did you know that bicycles are more beneficial than cars?
This may bring controversy to most people but let me provide a brief explanation why bicycles hold up against cars.
First, regular cycling contributes to greater physical and mental health. Certain studies show that developed countries have high percentage of overweight or obese people. Although the primary reason for gaining so much weight is the quality of food we eat, one other reason is these people didn’t have the time or the energy or the will to move their bodies. Studies show that people who are using bicycles in going to places are fit and healthy.
Second, maintaining bicycles is much cheaper than that of cars. An American study concluded that it roughly costs $300 to maintain a bicycle compared to the $8000 for operating cars. Especially for short trips, it is advisable to ride bikes since it won’t cost you extra income for gasoline. Sooner or later oil prices would increase gradually, decreasing the budget allotted for other necessities within the household.
Finally, bicycles are evidently earth-friendly. Smoke emitted from cars contributes great damage to the earth’s ozone layer. This is taught to us since our primary years in school. The more cars used every day, the risk of having unprecedented climate change is greater.
Furthermore, never underestimate the power of two-wheeled vehicles. They may not be as gallant and sophisticated compared to those shiny and expensive care but the benefits that you can get from these humble bicycles can pedal you not only from places to places but also to a much longer life span.
