Globalisation, no doubt, has brought a lot of growth in our society but at the same time, has brought its own share of disadvantages as well. One of the major effectsit has left is on our environment as well as our health. The number of motor vehicles on roads is increasing yearly in addition to other pollutants, therefore impacting the environment in an unhealthy manner both in the short and long run. So, what's the alternative, and how can you do your part to progress towards cleaner skies and air? Cycling as much as you can!
The next question that arises is, does one cycle only to control pollution and nothing else?
Well, there are a lot of benefits to using bicycles instead of motorbikes. Let's have a look!
Cycling addresses a bunch of health issues as compared to riding a motorbike, since it involves every muscle in your body. Cycling is a form of exercise that helps in lowering body fat percentage, lowering cholesterol, reducing the risk of contracting heart diseases, lowering stress levels, and so much more. Cycling to work five times a week can also help you burn up to 2000 calories, thus saving your average monthly expense of going to the gym by an approximate amount of 3000 INR.
- Fuel A motorbike can only be driven when it has fuel in its tank, whereas a bicycle as we all know, is not restricted by this barrier at all. A bicycle is always good to go no matter the time, place, trip or plan!
- Pocket friendly Motorbikes not only come with a lot of baggage, but also with a heavy price tag, leaving your pockets empty. In the long run, motorbikes require a lot of servicing that can cost you varying amounts of money, depending on your servicer. On the other hand, a bicycle is a one-time pocket friendly investment, without any fuss for extra care. As per statistics, the average cost for riding a motorbike to work is 10 times the cost of cycling to work.
- Transport benefits Bicycles are the best means of transport to escape the hourly rush of traffic, especially in big cities. They give you the freedom to cruise beyond geographical constraints and explore new roads. Whereas, given the structure of motorbikes, it's more difficult to make way through heavy traffic with them.
Cycling opens up new avenues for becoming acquainted with other cyclists and getting to know them while embarking on a new #EverydayAdventure. Forming new connections with new people is always a fun experience for riders.
There are several reasons as to why a bicycle is the smarter choice, but nothing beats the experience that going on an #EverydayAdventure on your Firefox ride brings. After all, that's what makes it the best and eco-friendly alternative to riding a motorbike.
We hope you have an awesome #EverydayAdventure!
