Riding a bike is a physical activity that has many favorable benefits, two of them being that it is enjoyable and also great exercise. As people ride their bikes, they often get whisked away by the fun of it and so don’t even regard the activity as exercise, though it actually provides effective aerobic exercise that increases the pulse rate and so helps in burning fat. However, riding a bike can also prove to be a health risk if the activity is done carelessly and without the proper safety gear, or even without the proper precautions. In order to get the maximum benefit of enjoyment and exercise that bike riding provides, it is also fundamental to be safe while doing so.
