Cycling is a great fun activity.
The best part about this activity is that, you would find cycling a delightful experience, without even realizing that it has done good to your body. Cycling becomes difficult when u have to but its easy when you want to.
It is a complete environmental friendly activity. It is the best mode to move around your local area without any difficulty.

Cycling is about exploring.
A chance to meet new people and discover new places.We can go on our cycle where we like. All we need is a pathway.As we travel along on cycle, we enjoy fresh air. Outdoor life provides us many advantages. New scenes meet our eyes. Our mind is free from the serious thoughts. We forget bitterness of life so long as we are on the bicycle. Cycle is a boon to those who live in cities. They have many chances to enjoy the nature. They are quite strangers to the natural scenes. Many of them cannot go out of the town for many reasons. To these people the cycle is of great use. It enables them to go to the country. There they can enjoy beautiful scenes of nature.Cycling is not a race, its a journey. Enjoy the moment.

Mangalore Bicycle club (MBC) is a BIG family of cyclists. People here get along so well and each one of them are passionate about cycling. They do it not only for fitness but also to enjoy the country side and also to have a good time with each other. To ensure this, the club organizes events like dedicating rides as a tribute, ride for a cause and also night rides to pass the message that cycling can be done at anytime of the day. It’s always a joy to be a part of this club and events are organized  in regular basis to keep the family together. One of the best event of MBC is ‘Car free day’ and all the members actively participate by using public transport second Saturday of every month. The feeling of reducing the carbon footprint is bliss.

Shifting just 10% of journeys from car to cycle  would reduce air pollution and save 400 productive life years. Bicycle parking takes up 8 times less space than cars, helping to free up space. Cycling saves a third of road space compared to driving, to help cut congestion.More cycling means less smog.Fewer motor vehicles also mean less noise.
Studies have found that mass cycling promote well being and people who commute by bicycle are less stressed than those who do by car.It also assists independence for younger people.

I love cycling most of all because it gives me freedom. It’s about being outside, the wind blows over your face and the sights and sounds of life in the city or countryside. We love n a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. Why would anyone want to have an cycle exercise machine or go to a spinning class? Do you want to add life to your days?  Just get on a bike and let the chains of your bicycle set you free.
