The Environmental Benefits of Riding a Bike

What are the benefits of riding a bike? Why is riding a bike good for the environment? Now is a great time to ask and answer both questions because May is National Bike Month. All across New York, people are pulling their wheels out of their Safeguard self storage unit and gearing up for beautiful riding weather.

Why Is Riding a Bike Good for the Environment?

Your bike doesn't run on fossil fuels, so it doesn't emit greenhouse gases. When you ride it out of self storage, you don't have to stop and buy gasoline to fill it up and that helps reduce global fuel consumption!

Riding a bike expands your eco-friendly footprint by keeping you off the city's congested streets. It also helps hold down noise pollution. Every time you take your bicycle instead of the car, you're giving the planet a much-needed break.

What Are the Health Benefits of Riding a Bike?

At its core, riding a bicycle is so much fun! It's also easy to forget that it's great exercise, too. Riding your bicycle helps improve balance, flexibility, and muscle strength. The cardio workout keeps your circulatory system in top shape. Think about your bicycle as a gym on wheels. A cruise down one of the city's bike paths lowers stress, increases resistance to heart disease, and even helps you sleep better.

You enjoy knowing that you're doing your best for the environment and your health. Make it even better by adding these extra benefits that come with riding your trusty bicycle out of self storage.
