Biking is Awesome

Our life here on earth is just short and that's why in every blessing that we receive from God's, is we must enjoy and appreciate it. Because of his abundant love for us, he set all the beauty of his creations to earth for us to manage and love it all. And through with that, I can say that is the reason why I started to go with biking.

First of all, Biking is one of the best outdoor exercises for our body and at the same time, it can be one way to communicate with God by appreciating his creations. As an expat here in Saudi Arabia, there are many good places to explore through biking. Not just that, as it gives you a good healthy life, regenerating strength from a stressful work, it also keeps you away from getting homesick. Giving you more stories to share with your family during online chatting or telecommunications.

LOSA Bikers team is newly created group that I belong with here in Riyadh, together with my friends in my community I started to make the first ride last weekend and the experience is really awesome because after 32 kilometers of biking in Prince Faisal Ibn Bandar Ibn Abdulaziz Rd, Riyadh,  we also took time for devotion thinking and realizing how magnificent is our God.

For more coming biking adventure here Riyadh, I probably would love it to share here in my blogs.  

In addition here are the good benefits of Biking/Cycling for our health and fitness:

It only takes two to four hours a week to achieve a general improvement to your health. Biking/Cycling is:

Low impact – it causes less strain and injuries than most other forms of exercise.

A good muscle workout – cycling uses all of the major muscle groups as you pedal.

Easy – unlike some other sports, cycling does not require high levels of physical skill. Most people know how to ride a bike and, once you learn, you don’t forget.

Good for strength and stamina – cycling increases stamina, strength and aerobic fitness.

As intense as you want – cycling can be done at very low intensity to begin with, if recovering from injury or illness, but can be built up to a demanding physical workout.

A fun way to get fit – the adventure and buzz you get from coasting down hills and being outdoors means you are more likely to continue to cycle regularly, compared to other physical activities that keep you indoors or require special times or places.

Time-efficient – as a mode of transport, cycling replaces sedentary (sitting) time spent driving motor vehicles or using trams, trains or buses with healthy exercise.  via betterhealth
