One of the very interesting things about biking is the distance you cover without using an engine, you body becomes the engine that powers up the bike to move. This is a great way for you to exercise your body, pushing your muscles to the limit when you go up a hill(working out those glutes and hamstrings), and you can also enjoy the cool breeze that brushes up against your skin and the brief relaxation you get as your bike runs down the hill on a smooth road while put in very little or no effort but just enjoying the ride.

Today, a lot of people take part in biking activities for different reasons; some people just want to exercise and biking or is perfect for this activity since it can workout the whole body.
