Going for a Joy Ride

Cycling has exploded across the country ever since Britain’s phenomenal success on two wheels at the 2008 Beijing Olympics and then an even greater medal haul at the London 2012 games, encouraging people of all ages and sizes to dust off their bike helmets and hit the open road. Suddenly the country fell in love with cycling again.

There is a wondrous simplistic joy in cycling. First of all, nearly anyone can do it, though it’s never too late to start learning and very easy to pick up. Furthermore, it can be done almost anywhere at any time, which not only opens up the freedom to cycle to your heart’s content, but also the possibility of exploration and adventure. Cycling is a brilliant way to see new places and with endless roads to go down and places to go, no two cycle rides ever need be the same. You can go wherever you want, for as long as you want, as fast you want, its entirely at your pleasure.

It’s a fantastic stress buster as well. Active Imagery MP3s are designed to help you relax whilst you exercise and cycling can do the same. Having an hour to yourself, in peace and quiet, can be hard to find and cycling is great reason to take that time to yourself and your own thoughts. Or Alternatively it can be a great social occasion. Cycling in groups can help you to enjoy the ride even more, as well as offering some encouragement as you go.

More than anything else it’s a great way to stay active and healthy. Active Imagery is all about motivating you to move and cycling would definitely be up the top of our list. It’s easy to do but brilliant for keeping up your fitness, burning calories, keeping your muscles moving and maintaining all the other health benefits physical activity can bring.

However more importantly than anything else, it’s fun. And that’s what it’s really about.
