What are the benefits?
The following are some of the benefits of cycling if done routinely.
Increase muscle strength
Caring for joints
Maintain body weight
Reduces stress levels
Reducing the risk of other diseases
Cycling, including cardio, is categorized as such because with cycling, the performance of the heart, lungs, and blood circulation system will improve. In addition, regular cycling is also able to reduce levels of bad cholesterol in the blood, strengthen heart muscle, and lower blood pressure. Decreasing bad cholesterol levels will reduce the risk of narrowing of the arteries. Normally trained heart muscle will be more effective so the process of delivering blood and oxygen throughout the body is more optimal. The better the performance of your circulatory or cardiovascular system, the lower your risk of stroke, heart attack, and high blood pressure.
How many limbs and muscles are involved when you are cycling? Almost everything, right? If done routinely, strong and flexible muscles are one of the results. In addition, coordination and balance of the body are also trained.
In addition to muscles, joints in the arms and legs are also active. The elbows, knees, ankles and wrists are some of the joints that will automatically work when cycling. A good movement of the joints will make it more flexible.
Thanks to cycling, your cardiovascular and muscular performance is becoming increasingly optimal. One of the advantages of an active body, good cardiovascular, and trained muscles is increased body metabolism and calorie burning. Calorie burning is of course very good for maintaining ideal body weight. Combine routine cycling habits with a balanced nutritional diet, to prevent and overcome obesity.
When cycling, the body releases a hormone called endorphins. This hormone triggers a sense of comfort and a positive mood. In addition, endorphins can also reduce pain. The emergence of a sense of comfort in the body will certainly reduce the burden that clings to your mind. Coupled with the scenery that you can enjoy while cycling, the reduction in stress levels in your body will be increasingly felt.
Routine physical activity through cycling is good for general bodily health. One of the advantages of an active body is the minimal risk of developing diabetes. This is related to the stable production of insulin by the active body. Cycling can also reduce the risk of cancer, especially colon cancer.

Wear head, elbow and knee protectors
Make sure you are seen
Before cycling fun, make sure you have checked all the components in your bike ranging from brakes, to tire conditions. Leaving a part of your bike out of service can create an injury risk.
The head, elbows, and knees are among the parts of the body that are vulnerable to injury if they fall. Make sure you protect all three so that if you fall, the effect isn’t too fatal.
You might ride on public roads and in the dark. Therefore, make sure you can be seen by other vehicle users while cycling. Install the lights and use brightly colored clothes or those made from glow in the dark.
Cycling still must pay attention to other road users, both motorized vehicle users or pedestrians. If the road does not provide a special track for bicycles, do not grab pedestrian rights. Make sure you also always give signs to other road users when going to turn or stop. Do not do it suddenly because it could endanger you and other road users. Surely, obey traffic signs that apply.
If your bike is ready for combat, then enjoy the various benefits of biking that can be obtained from the first stroke.
