Ever feel like you’ve lost the motivation to ride? Got bored of your same old commute? Think it might be time to take up a new hobby? Well put down those rollerblades my friend, I’m here to tell you not to lose faith. There are plenty of reasons to spin those pedals one more time.
Cyclists live forever
That’s right, you read that correctly. It turns out some Dutch geniuses at the University of Utrecht have found that cycling for one hour actually extends your life by the same amount of time. Which by our elementary school maths means if you never stop cycling your heart will never stop ticking neither.
You know what, I bet if you pulled back those curtains and poked your head out of your dank bedroom for two seconds you’d realise it’s a bloody beautiful day. And even if it isn’t, there’s nothing more fun than riding in the rain. Get out there and feel the wind on your face.
Today is the first day of the first week of the rest of the month of your life. Or something.
You’ll only get one shot at this thing called life and as our man Elvis says in the video below, time is precious.
Remember, friends you make on the internet are not real friends. Get out and start rolling with your IRL wolfpack. Like these guys, wouldn’t you want to be mates with them?
