  • It can help improve your self-esteem

Your self-image is very important to your mental health. Cycling, and exercise in general, will help you gain confidence and cultivate a positive self-image.

  • It can improve sleep

When you are biking and physically active, you will usually sleep better. Sleep goes a long way towards keeping your mind and body sharp, reducing stress, decreasing exhaustion, and promoting mental health.

  • It can help reduce anxiety

Anxiety afflicts many people in many different ways. From panic attacks to constant worrying to social anxiety, it can make daily life very difficult. Cycling is not a cure for anxiety, but it can help decrease and control symptoms.

  • It can relieve stress

Everybody has stress, and different outlets for that stress. Cycling is an effective outlet for many people, and offers an opportunity to get your mind off of your usual worries.
