Cycling Activity After Thanksgiving Celebrations
December 02, 2021
Thanksgiving is the perfect excuse to indulge (or overindulge up to some extent) in food. The spread is too tempting not to take a bite of every dish served on the table. And each taste is sweeter and more sumptuous because of the company. Family and friends make time and effort to gather on Thanksgiving. The celebration may drag up to the weekend. Reheated leftover food from Thursday's dinner is still yummy because you now associate the food with the stories and laughter shared during the festivity. But once the containers are empty, you will now realize that it is time to wear your exercise clothes and get your body moving. And what better way to jumpstart the fitness regimen is to cycle off-road and hillsides. Immerse in the cool winds as the fall foliage slowly turns into skeletal trees waiting for the first drop of snow. Soaking up on Vitamin D is always a good idea, especially when you spend most of your days at home working and attending to your needs and your family's. COVID-19 is still very real and has been a source of mental fatigue and physical inactivity. So, to keep ourselves physically and mentally healthy, hop on your bikes and traverse the picturesque roads. Cycling is known to protect us from diseases such as obesity, heart disease, mental illness, and other problems that may arise from the sedentary lifestyle–work from home's public enemy number one. Although a quick roundabout in the neighborhood is a good idea, why not take it top a notch and cycle uphill. Bring your friends and family, and it will double the fun (and pain). There is also pain when there is fun; cycling can be a complicated relationship that involves loving and hating the activity, especially if your body and mindset are not yet ready. But, once you have accomplished cycling uphill, you will be rewarded with an abundance of happiness and a sense of fulfillment. Are you ready to challenge yourself? Here are a few tips that you can rely on.
