For many, the thought of riding a bicycle brings back nostalgic memories of childhood. As kids, bikes helped us discover a wider world than we could have imagined unlocking by foot.

Below, we take a look at some of the biggest advantages of biking:

A Convenient Transportation Option

Biking offers a number of facilities that cars do not have. On the one hand, bicycles require far less maintenance than cars. You can easily get the best road bike hire services in Israel.

And for shorter trips through heavy traffic, it's often quicker to travel by bicycle than by car. Once you reach your destination, you can avoid the toll road and park your bike right in front of the property.

Good for your community

Bikes are also good for your community. Biking not only protects the car from the local roads, but also reduces the noise nuisance in your environment. Biking around your community allows you to interact with others around you in a much more human way.

Good for the environment

Dependence on cars poses a serious environmental problem. It is a world leader in oil consumption, leading to increased emissions of harmful gases including carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, methane, nitrous oxide, volatile organic compounds, fluorocarbons, fluorocarbons and sulfur hexafluoride.

Good for the health

If your goal is to up your caloric burn and lose weight, a bike ride might be a better use of your time than a brisk walk. Riding a bike gives you the same cardiovascular benefits as any other aerobic exercise.
