National Bike Month

National Bike Month

You can feel the wind in your hair, see the city go by, and have that amazing feeling of gliding. There is nothing like riding a bicycle. You’ll also reap the many health benefits of riding a bicycle! The bike is a marvellous contraption that deserves its own day.

The first mechanically-propelled, two-wheeled vehicle, or what could be called the father of the bicycle, was likely first built by a Scottish blacksmith named Kirkpatrick Macmillan in 1839, although nobody knows for certain. Several European inventors soon followed up on this invention and added elements that are familiar to cyclists today, such as the rear-wheel drive, hand-operated brakes, and the engine. Modern bicycles are one of the most practical and efficient human-powered modes of transportation. They are much more efficient than any other means of transport in terms of how much energy is required to travel a distance. People have used bicycles for many reasons.

People from all walks of life have used bicycles, including mailmen and salesmen, police officers and paramedics, and troops. The impact of bicycles on humanity has been enormous. They have helped to reduce traffic congestion, noise pollution and air pollution. Bicycles have been shown to be linked to significant decreases in poverty. In countries like Sri Lanka or Uganda, families’ incomes can increase by as much as 35% if there are at least two bikes in their household. National Bike Month is held every May to honor bikes and all the amazing things they have done and continue doing for us.

Ask yourself: When was the last time that you rode your bicycle? You’re making the planet and your health better by riding your bike regularly, even if it was not so recently. Keep doing what your doing! If you’ve been away for a while, National Bike Month can be a great opportunity to get back on the bike metaphorically and do some good things for your environment and yourself.

Regularly riding a bike has been shown to improve cardiovascular fitness, reduce stress levels, and lower body fat. You’ll also be able to get out and enjoy the fresh air while riding your bike. And we all know that working in air-conditioned offices for 8 hours per day could benefit from more of this! Make a change this National Bike Month by riding your bike to work at least once a week. If you can, try going more often. You can make riding your bike part of your exercise routine if your workplace is far from you or you don’t have the time to shower immediately upon arrival.

Many people do all kinds of difficult and hard to master exercises in an attempt to lose weight and get more fit. Can you really imagine sweating in tights at a gym and gliding along a road on a bicycle with the sound of your bike? Get out there and ride your bike!
