Bike to Work
Before you stick your tongue out expressing utter mockery thinking how far this new ‘trend’ will continue to survive, give the idea a second thought and think about what amazing facts you’ve been missing out all these years while your morning rush to work. A simple ‘bike to work’ strategy can surprisingly increase your allocated daily time slot, which excludes the working hour, save your transport budget and most importantly, keep you miles away from gaining the fat you’ve been diligently nurturing in your body with your desk job.
Well, the only trade-off with biking to your work is that it will burn your fat away. It’s like a free gym on your two wheeler. Very soon the shirts you’ve put up because you’ve become chubbier due to your day long desk job, you will be able to slickly sneak into them. The freshness of the morning and afternoon plus cycling is a definite antidote for the stress you gain due to work.
Worried about sweating and your formal attire? You clearly haven’t seen Patrick J. Adams in the TV serial Suits! Commuting with your normal average speed with bike will not let you sweat as much as you are worrying. However, you can always wear your favorite cycling suit and carry your formal clothes into your backpack and change it in the washroom of your workplace. Look around, there are so many cyclists commuting to their workplace with or without the formal attire.
‘Bike to Work’ however is not a very recent phenomenon. Countries like USA and Canada observes ‘Bike to Work Day’ annually to promote bicycling to work. The month May is observed as ‘Bike to Work Month’. It is now a growing interest in different countries. For example, cycling in London has increased by 91% since 2003. Many of the working places now a days have parking space for cycle. Bikes are easily affordable, runs on your fat and studies showed that bicycle commuters are more productive and healthier.So, get a bike, start commuting to your work, live longer, younger, happier and see the positive changes in yourself!
