A bike is so much more than the average Christmas present. It offers both adventure and freedom and is a timeless activity that can be enjoyed by all ages, both alone or in a group.
For lots of Christmas presents, their time comes and goes in a few short days and weeks. Depending on your age when you get a bike and how well you maintain it, it can be a present that lasts for years. Knowing that this is a present you can enjoy for a long time to come makes it all the more satisfying when you first lay eyes on your new bike.
Bike as Christmas Present
As well as being a lot of fun, there are great health and fitness benefits to owning a bike. It’s great for increasing cardiovascular fitness and uses all of the major muscle groups. Cycling is also a low impact exercise and you can make it as intense as you want to fit your needs. Owning a bike also means you have the option to exercise both in a group or on your own.
Providing you take the proper precautions and aren’t averse to the UK winter weather a bike is something that can be enjoyed all year round. From a light pedal on a bright summer day to a more intense workout in the colder months owning a bike allows you to enjoy partaking in an active hobby all throughout the year.
Receiving a bike as a gift can also make you think more about your carbon footprint. Cycle to work schemes have really taken off in recent years and more and more people are looking at ways they can help the environment. Owning a bike means that you have an alternative mode of transport at your disposal at all times, enabling you to do your bit for the environment.
For all these reasons and of course many more a bike could be the perfect Christmas present or even a hobby that you could think about taking up in the new year.
