Why do I Love Riding Bicycles

Cycling is my favorite thing to do. I started to love cycling when I was a kid. I remember my first bike, my mother gave it to me as a present. It was a pink colored bicycle with a stabiliser and a basket on the front side. It was hidden inside the box. I remember the joy I’ve felt when it was revealed in front of me. It was the most significant birthday present I have received.

I also remember vividly the day the stabilisers came off. It was two weeks after my birthday, after my mother taught me how to ride my bike. She was running behind and not telling me she’d let go as I carried on without falling. After that, I was off. I remember many childhood crashes, including when my sister and I decided it would be a really good idea to ride to the park just the two of us, without the consent of our parents.

Riding a bicycle has saved me so much time, and money. I passed my driving test and I have my own car but then I rather choose to cycle every day. I only use my car if I have to go somewhere far from the city or if there’s an event I need to attend.

When you ride a bicycle, you have the chance and time to see beautiful views so much more than other forms of transport. On one holiday, I stopped to look at some beautiful places along a country road. I could smell the warmth and scent of fresh air, trees and flowers while the early evening glow caught the sunsets. I mentioned this to my friend who lives locally and who had driven along that route hundreds of times using her car but, naturally keeping his eye on the road, had even never noticed there were a lot of stunning places and views at the area of the road. Riding a bike allows you to cover so much more ground than walking, but you can see so much more than from a car. On the other ride I’ve made using my bicycle, I spotted a bird, squirrels and a snake wriggling into a bush. You’d frighten them off with a roaring engine, or even turn them into roadkill.

These are the things that other forms of transport will never give you.

Welcome to our small corner in the internet! This website provides entertaining and informative cycling news and information for average cycling enthusiasts.

I’m Lindsay Kang, an average cyclist, and I write a blog for people like me. People who love cycling but will probably never win any races, and who found cycling as a routine exercise and had care for the environment. Most cycling blogs you find in the internet are about people who can bike really fast or should I say professional cyclists – and who look stunningly good in skintight lycra. We are not like them!

If you are cyclist who is interested in a blog about average people having fun on bikes, please consider joining our community by subscribing.

My sister and I had common similarities when it comes to hobbies like cycling and swimming. We are not professional cyclists but we love bicycles so much. In fact, our garage is full of bicycle gears that we cannot manage to handle them all. So, we got to call A1 Garage Door repair Service in Tempe to help us improve our garage door.

Riding a bicycle gives you freedom. That feeling of being outside in the morning or during noon or just before the sunset, with your hair flowing by the wind (yup! that’s right, you don’t always have to wear those head gears) and the sights and sounds of life in the city or countryside. Why would anyone want to have a cycle exercise machine or go to a gym? Why do people have to join bicycle races to compete with other cyclists? Just get on a bike and go somewhere. By cycling, you are not just seeing stunning places but you are indeed exercising your heart and body. Plus, you are helping our environment to heal.

Help our environment heal from those toxic fumes. Bicycles produce zero pollution. Imagine those vehicle emissions contributing to the smog in the city and urban areas, they cause various types of respiratory illnesses. Chemicals used in cars also poison the water ways. Noises may disturb animals from their homes. A lot of suburban areas look ecologically dull, with the traffic congested and aesthetically grim. If people use bicycles for life and lessen the use of cars, we can prevent these kinds of situations. Using bicycles have lots of benefits in nature, health and even to your overall well-being.

Since you’re here, we ask for your help. More people are reading our website and we want more people to notice our mission to spread the benefits of cycling. Also, we encourage people to use bicycles more than cars. We want to keep our website as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. So please recognize us and introduce us to your friends, neighbors, relatives and colleagues. Your support is all we ask to continue our journey and to keep our website active. We definitely work really hard and spend a lot of time to manage this website. But we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too.

We suggest that you check our blog as we post interesting stories and better understanding of using bicycles for transportation.
