Eastern Mountain Sports in the News
As the weather warms up, spending time outside becomes more desirable. Why not ditch your car and buy a bicycle instead? Bikes are not only a cheap way to travel, but they are great exercise, and are fun too!
Bicycling is a great form of exercise and provides cyclists with a variety of health benefits. AdultBicycling.com reports that cycling can build and strengthen muscle tone, improve cardio-vascular fitness and reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.
Cycling is a great way to enjoy nice weather, but safety is important. Before your bike ride, remember to put sunblock on exposed skin - even on cloudy days. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, ultraviolet radiation reaches the earth and can cause skin damage even when the sky is overcast.
Also, make sure you wear a properly fitted helmet. Check that your helmet fits snugly and does not move considerably when on your head. A bright color helmet will help make you more visible to motorists, cyclists, and pedestrians.
Cycling is both fun and beneficial to your health, and it may also save you money. Unlike a car, you won't need to fill a costly gas tank.
While riding a bike may save you money in the long run, using promotional codes when you purchase your bike can also help keep extra change in your pocket. Snag a great bike - and a great deal - at shops like Modell's Sporting Goods and Eastern Mountain Sports, and score further savings with a promotional code.
