"When the spirits are low, when the day appears dark, when work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having, just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road, without thought on anything but the ride you are taking." -Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

Cycling is a sport which gives anyone who takes to two wheels an enormous sense of freedom. Leaving the stresses of daily life and pedalling away without a care in the world, whether it's in your local lanes or high in the mountains miles from civilisation. There's little that can beat the beautiful simplicity of a bike ride.

Riding can help enhance your state of mind and brain power, fighting the effects of anxiety and stress. A lot of exploration and research has been done on this topic, demonstrating that cycling is not just about improving your lungs, legs, and heart, but your grey matter as well. It also improves your mood, elevates stress resistance and decreases anxiety because of boosting the levels of feel-great endorphins, for example, dopamine and serotonin.

4. Cycling enhances the quality of sleep

Cycling is good for promoting a better quality of sleep, which thus can offer incredible health benefits. One study at Stanford University Of Medicine (USA) found that people with sleep disorders who cycled about 25-30 minutes a day fell asleep more easily and sleep time expanded by an hour. Thus, on the off chance that you struggle to sleep, cycling could be the answer to your problem.

5. Cycling is a great way to bond with your family

Cycling is one of the easiest activities to perform as a family. It is an incredible approach to spend time together and bond. It also promotes a positive and healthier lifestyle, which many children then take on into their adulthood.

6. Cycling helps us save our environment

Cycling is the new green. Travelling via bicycle is the cleanest form of commute, apart from walking. A bike uses no fuel and, compared to a car, it needs less energy and materials to form. Also, since a bike has no engine and is powered solely by pedalling, the only source of CO2 emission is human respiration. Many of our choices have direct effects on the environment; our mode of travel is one of them. Since we benefit so much from Mother Nature, we ought to give back too.
