There are many different reasons to start riding your bike to work, if it’s a possibility for you. First and foremost, riding a bike is a fabulous way of burning calories and creating muscle tone in your legs, core and even arms. Biking burns even more calories than walking and is easier on your body than running or jogging. Not only is it a great workout, it’s also a fabulous way of loosening up and relaxing; since you will be releasing endorphins from exercising and also skipping out on all the stress of sitting in traffic, you will get double the benefits. Not only is biking to work great for your fitness and mental health, it’s also great for the environment. By taking your car out of traffic, you are helping on cutting back on your own carbon footprint. You can also feel great about all the money you are saving by not having to pay for gas and wear and tear on your car. If you’re looking for a great commuter bike, you have many women’s three speed bikes to choose from.
Are you excited to begin your biking journey? Then it’s so important that you spend the time finding a bike that’s right for your body type and your needs. Take your time looking through the different types of bike to find the right one for you and remember that women’s bikes are shaped specifically for you. If you settle for a bike that isn’t designed for women, you are going to find that the shape and size are all wrong for you. A women’s bike is going to be the right height for the average woman, meaning slightly smaller than a man’s bike. It will also have a shorter reach, the space between the saddle and the handlebars, so you don’t have to reach too far to reach the handles and make your shoulders, back and neck uncomfortable.
Three speeds is a fantastic choice for a commuter bike because it gives you just enough options to comfortably ride to and from work without having to switch through too many gears. While you’re shopping, don’t forget to carefully examine all of the other features of the bike. Everything from the saddle size and height, the bike’s suspension and brakes are all going to help determine the bike’s overall comfort while you are driving to and from work.
