You must have remembered the days when your daddy helped you ride a bicycle and how exciting it was to learn the cycling for the first time. You might have scrapped knees experience in the beginning, but it would stay in your memories forever.

Nowadays, kids are staying at home and want to do something that keeps them active. Most of the time, they are involved in the indoor game, mobile phones, laptops, social media, video games and their physical health is impacted
Remember in our childhood how much we were physically active and sometimes we were even scolded for playing more outside the home. Cycling can save from this trap.
Benefits of cycling
While most of us know that regular cycling contributes to better physical health, there are plenty of other reasons as well. It’s simple fun; it keeps kids physically active, is good for mental health and learning, is good for the environment, relieves stress, strengthens emotional wellness, enhances social skills, etc.
I would recommend it because it creates memories with your child for a lifetime. These days mother and father both are working; children have very little time to spend with their parents. So cycling builds up connection and bonding with your friends and family and this social skill help child to grow in their life.
Weight loss and the strengthening or increase of the leg and gluteal muscles are the two most important external changes that cycling causes in our body.
First, start cycling, even if it's just commuting or going for a 30-minute ride. Overcoming inactivity and picking up the exercise habit is already an achievement.
Riding a bike helps you lose weight, but pedaling doesn't do miracles. If you are cycling for fun or riding a bike as a means of transportation, you might not even notice the physical change.
Regular cycling stimulates and improves your heart, lungs and circulation, reducing your risk of cardiovascular diseases. Cycling strengthens your heart muscles, lowers resting pulse and reduces fat blood levels.
Riding a bike is healthy, fun and a low-impact form of exercise for all ages.
- Cycling is easy to fit into your daily routine by riding to the shops, park, school or work.
