You don’t have to be a hardcore cyclist, riding 50-100 miles a day (although, you may if that’s your thing) to experience the joys of cycling. There are numerous benefits of getting into cycling. Including, but not limited to:
- Getting some exercise: Nothing like breathing nice fresh air and getting a little cardio in at the same time. Nice way to get in shape and lose a few pounds!
- Reduce stress: This one kinda goes with the first one. It was been proven that exercise can help reduce stress and anxiety, and even help cheer you up when you’re feeling a little down.
- Save Gas & Go Green: Gas is expensive. Cars pollute. Why not do your part, when you can, and go green?
- Explore Your Environment: How often we drive by beautiful scenery, surroundings/architecture in our cars. On your bike, you can take it in and enjoy it all at a slower pace.
So let’s go, what are you waiting for?
There are several cycling analytics & monitoring sites and tools available. I’m currently testing TrainingPeaks, SportTracks, VeloViewer and Golden Cheetah to determine which would be the best for me.
Do you use one of these services or have you used any of these in the past? Which, if any, do you use or prefer?
