Ten good reasons to cycle. All of them a bit tongue-in-cheek, and all with a lot of truth.
.
10 – Your wallet stays fat(ter) – unless of course you fall for the enticements of the carbon-fibre path.
.
09 – You belly gets slimmer. Or your share of the cake gets bigger, and your belly stays the same. Win-Win!
.
08 – Endorphins – they come free with every hill. Okay, sometimes they lag a bit behind.
.
07 – No guilt – while we don’t recommend showing this off too much, it’s still good for a warm self-righteous inner glow…
.
06 – All the cool kids are doing it – be ahead of the curve. Bicycles are retro, bicycles are the future.
.
05 – It’s faster – during an Auckland traffic jam, for anything short of a trip to Pukekohe.
.
04 – It’s safer – than not cycling (and then finding an excuse to not visit the gym).
.
03 – Stress relief – whether via a leisurely amble back home, or from barreling down that hill at 50 km/h [just don’t barrel through that red light, or you’ll stress your cycle advocates!]
.
02 – Enter your own reason here! Win prizes! [Benefits are real. Prizes may be imaginary.]
.
01 – You don’t need any reason. Just ride.
