Risks and rewards of cycling – Expert in compensation in Kingston upon Thames
Cycling is a free and enjoyable way to get around, that keeps you fit and can be enjoyed at any time. However, it does also carry risks that you should be aware of before you buy a bike and start riding around.
Once you know the risks and benefits you should be better equipped to decide whether cycling is the best way to get around for you, or if you are better sticking to public transport!
Healthy. Most people living in a city find it hard to get exercise outside of the gym. Cycling gives you a way to get plenty of exercise and fit it in with your daily routine, using your bike to get to places you need to be so you get some exercise on the way.
Fun. Although lots of people also enjoy driving, cycling gives you a burst of adrenalin and triggers the ‘feelgood’ centre of your brain so that you always feel exhilarated and happy when you are cycling. Cycling with friends and family can also be a great weekend activity.
Injury. If you are careful then you shouldn’t be at major risk of injury. However, on a bike you are more exposed to the elements and other vehicles than if you were in a car. If you are knocked by a car then you will be far more badly injured than if you were in a larger vehicle.
Exposure to pollution. In the cities, the roads can be quite bad for pollution. If you are on a bike then you have nothing between you and the pollution on the roads, which can make you feel ill after some time. It is also bad for your health to breathe in too much pollution over a long period of time.
