Cycling benefits your health, is a great way to get fresh air and explore the outdoors. Cycling requires a little investment, possibly some training or equipment/clothing but don't let that put you off. One of the many perks to cycling is after a little practice you'll be exercising without noticing it while enjoying being outside.
