Here at Lifecycle we aim to promote cycling as a fun, healthy activity that we can enjoy throughout out lives.
As the old saying goes, once you learn how to ride a bike, you never forget… Perhaps we don’t forget HOW to ride a bike, but we regularly forget TO actually get out and ride!!!
It’s never too early to start learning to cycle and it’s never to late to get back into it as long as you have the physical strength and coordination to ride a bike.
This website is run on a non-profit basis to encourage and promote cycling and to create a resource to help interested parties to encourage and promote cycling. We target 3 main modes of cycling:
Cycling as a Mode of Transport
Millions of people worldwide use cycling as their main mode of transport. Cycling has the advantage over cars because bikes are much cheaper than cars. Additionally, bikes in congested cities can often make better time when traveling as they can maneuver around obstacles and traffic that cars cannot. They are better for the environment and for the human body as they cut down on emissions and add health to the human body.
Cycling for Fun and Pleasure
One of the major milestones in many peoples’ lives is learning to ride a bike. Parents spend a great deal of time teaching kids to ride, then praise the milestone to the children and their friends. As people get older they tend to forget the fun and the many hours spent on bikes as a child. Adults can get just as much pleasure from cycling, if not more. In fact, adults can go many places and experience new challenges as part of the cycling experience. Conquering trails, riding through the countryside, and seeing the sunset from a bike are all ways that people derive pleasure from the experience.
Cycling for Sport and Fitness
Cycling is a great way to experience a new sport or gain fitness. Many adults find that aging prevents them from enjoying sports of youth. Rugby becomes a great source of pain, while the joints begin to wear out from all of the running. Cycling is gentle on the joints, but gets the body into great shape. It provides a cardio workout every time, while strengthening the lower body and working the core muscles. It is also a great way to meet others who enjoy the cycling experience.
