Biking is a fantastic way to have fun, get great exercise and lose weight , however before you even think about biking get the OK from your Doctor. Once you have the medical clearance and before you buy or jump on your current bike make a plan to start biking gradually. It depends on your final goals but start with short bikes around your neighborhood or local bike paths generally 2 to 3 miles at first gradually adding a few miles at a time and regardless of the temputure or other weather conditions always pack enough water and carry money with you to purchase more water along the way if you need it. You do not need to buy an expensive bike , but what you do need to do is buy a bike that fits you Walmart & Target both have decent bikes.
Having a bike that fits your body is essential to enjoy biking and to avoiding straining yourself. Besides the bicycle, you should invest in a quality helmut . I have been through a few but what is important is the fit and comfort. But one could safe you life so spend the the additional money and ware it when ever you are on the road Happy Biking – here I am coming off the trail. I just came back from a bike ride and one thing I tell everyone make you sure you have a helmut on I like to use these cusioned gloves to avoid carpal tunnel. And biking is a great way because you are using that big thigh muscle I talked about building up muscle matter which will burn calories these big muscles are great on a bike and for us fat people it’s the best exercise you can do while you are sitting plus you are out on a beautiful day like today , it’s a gorgeous day I was out the bike trail and ah, if go on local street make sure you follow the same rules as a car at a red light you stop you go with the flow with the traffic not against it when there is a stop sign you stop, be careful out there, make sure you wear bright clothes so people can see you a far.
Go out there and enjoy yourself. Biking is a great way to lose weight and I do it as often as I can. Happy Biking!!!!.
