The Being Healthy TV promo came out this Sunday.  I hope you all enjoyed it.  The first show will come out on June 21st and every Sunday after that.  It is up on iTunes, so feel free to subscribe! It is going to be a great year for Being Healthy TV.

Cycling is a great way for people who have no spare time to fit some physical activity into their daily schedule.  And with the price of gas going up, using a bicycle for small shopping trips, commuting, visiting friends or just for the joy of the ride, may help your pocketbook at the same time as it improves your physical condition.

That’s why today, I’m going to go over the health benefits of cycling, the importance of choosing a properly fitted bike and tips on how to be safe on the road.

Some references I used while researching this show are The New Wellness Encyclopedia, healthywomen.org and ctc.org.

The blog posts for this week are:

  1. Strength Training: Free Weights vs. Resistance Machines!
  2. Somebody Needs a Nap?

If you like the show, please head on over to iTunes and give me a nice review. It’s a great way to give me some good exposure and can help me get more listeners. Thanks for listening, everyone!

    Good post. I am glad that you addressed the safety and rules of using a bike. There are too many people who think that when they are on a bike the rules don’t pertain to them.

    Cyclists also need to adhere to basic cycling etiquette – if you pass someone, do so on that person’s left and announce that you are passing, e.g. “Passing on your left”. Otherwise, you might startle the cycling you are overtaking, who in turn swerves either into a ditch or worse, into you and whatever motor vehicle traffic is nearby.
