Be Safe
Getting on a bike is just like getting behind the wheel. It is fun, AND knowing how to ride well will keep yourself and others around you safe. Having a bike that fits your needs, knowing how to ride it well, following traffic laws designed to keep you safe, and taking care of your bike (just as you would a car) are important parts of being a safe cyclist and superior rider. Make sure to protect your head with a new or relatively new bike helmet so you can enjoy all the health benefits listed in the next section even after an accident. Is A Helmet Worth it?

Be Healthy
Researchers from Illinois University found that a five percent improvement in cardio-respiratory fitness from cycling led to an improvement of up to 15 percent in mental tests. That’s because cycling helps build new brain cells in the hippocampus – the region responsible for memory. Don’t forget about bicycling as a great commute option or a connecting mode to transit. Learn more about the many health benefits of cycling in this well researched article by David De Haan from BikeTrainerWorld.com.
