Riding a bicycle is a great way to get exercise. You can ride your bike almost any time of year and you will always get a great workout.
Many people like to ride their bicycles after work and unwind. Studies have shown that exercise will release "feel good" endorphins in your body that reduce stress and give you an overall feeling of happiness. No matter if you're new to bike riding or you're an old pro, you will need to make yourself visible to passing motorists no matter what time of day you ride. Reflective tapes are very handy to have on your pedals, back of your bicycle seat and fenders.
Another item that will come in very handy on your bicycle is an LED bicycle light
. They are very useful if you ride in areas that tend to get foggy or you like to ride after dark, you definitely want to make sure that you are clearly seen from a distance so drivers have a chance to see you and avoid you on the road. LED lights last over 100,000 hours and the lights are visible from at least 1500-feet away.
If you like to ride with your children, make sure they are just as visible as you are and put an LED light and/or reflective tapes on their bicycles to ensure they are riding safely.
Riding a bicycle is an enjoyable way to get exercise and spend time with your family, make sure everyone that rides, rides safe with good reflective equipment.
