Hi there, my name is Dan Sullivan, and a fitness expert. My love affair with cycling started way back when I was seven when I got my first bike as a gift from my dad.
I was so excited; I couldn’t get a good sleep that day because I was so eager to hit the road with my new wheels and friends the next day. Since that day, I’ve never stopped cycling; participating in a variety of cycling events all year round.
It became more than a hobby; it was my passion and it drove me to learn more about the benefits of working out—especially cycling, as well the different types of bikes and their functionalities.
One of the reasons I decided to stick with cycling as a workout routine was because of the monotony that came with other exercises. It became harder for me to go to the gym and go through the motions; get on the treadmill, lift weights, stretch; rinse, and repeat.
Cycling on the other hand, keeps you connected with the great outdoors and your family can also join in on the fun. As a beginner, it can be difficult choosing the right workout equipment; do you need a treadmill, an elliptical, or a rowing machine? Click on the link below to find out.
There’s a lot more that goes into choosing a bike than simply picking it out from a store. First, you need to figure out where you’ll be using that bike i.e. are you in the market for an indoor or outdoor bike.
There are a variety of both indoor and outdoor bikes. Indoors bikes are divided into a spin, recumbent, magnetic, etc., outdoor bikes are categorized depending on their use i.e. triathlon, mountain, fat, women’s bikes, etc. Then there’s the different accessories, parts, etc. e.g. pedals, helmets, etc.
