COVID-19 has had us social distancing and quarantining for so long that some of the most routine aspects of life have become obsolete. A night out with friends is, quite literally, out. Casual interactions with new acquaintances have gotten even more awkward — you'll be met with shaking heads if you try to shake hands.  

Some days, it feels like we're forgetting what "normal" looks like. Despite this, it's more important than ever to maintain healthy habits and routines. And you know what they say... you never forget how to ride a bike. 

Bicycling's Benefits

Many have turned to the bike after the gym or office turned them out. The open road allows for exercise and fresh air, without dangerous proximity to others and their germs. Biking can do more than fill an idle afternoon of social distancing, however. When you warm up your wheels, you can look forward to

  • Lowered stress, anxiety, and depression
  • Stronger muscles and bones
  • Decreased body fat and increased flexibility
  • Reduced risk of disease

As a low-impact activity, biking's benefits can be enjoyed by people of all ages! Get out with your friends or family — just make sure to take the appropriate precautions. 

Cycling Miracles in 2020

Not yet convinced? Here are some encouraging stories to get you out on the road... or at least get your smiling. 

After a shocking discovery on the effects that pedaling can have on Parkinson's disease, thousands of patients have been able to bike towards some relief. Not only can it ease symptoms, but it can also provide a sense of hope, accomplishment, and community. 

Cycling has also been shown to reduce the risk of certain cancers, bone disease, and arthritis. There may be many troubling things in our world right now, but with biking, it doesn't have to be all bad news! 

2020 has taken us down many unexpected paths. It's about time you get to forge your own. Stay safe, stay active, and stay cycling!

For many years, many economies of the world have been dependent on fossil fuels as their primary source of energy. This heavy reliance on fossil fuels has had a toll on the environment.

With this influx of E-bikes, the main question is whether or not these lithium-ion batteries can sustainably meet our energy needs.
