Cycling, as one may have noticed, is the new trend that has dawned upon this entire nation. The whole world is witnessing the rapid changes in weather conditions and these changes are definitely not good news. The advent of technology and new innovations in science has also resulted in the damage of environment and harming the nature. To solve all these issues, various countries have now been trying to adopt methods that could benefit the planet and in various fields.
One sector which needs special attention is the transportation sector. Fifty years back there were not as many cars and motor vehicles today. Now, there are more vehicles on road than the roads can accommodate and this has resulted in heavy congestion, long traffic queues and high pollution rates in the country. New Delhi and Mumbai were victims to high pollution rates and we have to act immediately if we have to stop other places also to falling prey to the pollution. One change that is put into practice recently is the mode of transportation being shifted from motor vehicles to cycles in big cities. The big cities are the hub of pollution and other environmental problems and the reforms are needed first in these cities. Cycling, if adopted by many, can solve this huge environmental crisis. The cycles neither run on fuels like petrol or diesel, nor do they emit any kind of harmful gases, hence it is very much eco-friendly and also at the same time eases the pressure on the depleting resources or the fuels. Cycling is the perfect solution as it helps you dodge the heavy traffic on your way as it does not take up a lot of space, and it is very easy to ride, all you need to learn is to balance between the wheels. With all these benefits, one may certainly ask the question that strikes in every other mind that, ‘Is cycling regularly easy?’
Initially, cycling might consume your energy a little more than what you would expect, but if you make it a habit to cycle regularly, it will be a piece of cake for you. It will then not feel very tiring, on the contrary makes you more energetic. You might have noticed that people who cycle regularly remain fitter. You can see the change for yourself if you take it up as a habit and make sure to cycle regularly for at least 30 minutes. Don’t start by cycling long distances or cycling for hours. Start riding short distances and eventually try expanding your radius and increase your time cycling. Cycling regularly also comes with a ton of health benefits like improving your daily blood circulation and also is one of the best exercises for your body. Cycling is best when it comes to micro mobility or travelling shorter distances; it saves you a ton of expenses which you might incur if you travel daily using the motor vehicles. Cycling is the most cost effective mode of commute in today’s date in the big cities.
You may think that these all just sound good in theory but in practice it is very difficult or as some might put it next to impossible. Well, as a matter of fact you would be amazed to know that in a few European cities like London, Copenhagen, Berlin, and many more, cycling is the set trend where people cycle to work regularly and prefer travelling across the cities in their cycles rather than mother vehicles. This has aided in keeping the pollution level in check and also at the same time taken care of the heavy congestion on roads.
