Bicycling Saves Lives

An afternoon on the bike trail could extend your life!!

So often, we hear about all the ways to help us live longer, and they often involve sacrifice. I mean, who wants to stop eating fun food. Most people would say, "Go ahead & take a couple years off my life if I can keep enjoying the treats I love."
Hit the trail and help your heart!!

But now, we're finding out that there's a fun way to get healthier and fight heart disease.

According to a recent study, "Three hours of bike riding per week could cut your risk of heart attack and stroke in half." Wow... talk about having your cake and eating it too. Riding bicycles (especially on trails) is a blast!!   AND... it's good for you. Talk about doubling your fun!

Thanks to People for Bikes for a great web page with the above bike facts and more. They made a nice graphic showing the benefits of bicycling. If you get a chance, check it out.
