Ever since I have been cycling again, this time with my own bicycle and for commuting purposes, I find my body becoming healthier. I have stopped exercising a while ago because it was really discouraging to see myself getting fatter the more I exercise - because I was on my Remeron and still am - which simply makes you fat whether you eat or exercise or not.
This year J and I bought bicycles and we have been using to commute short distances. I have a fear of riding on pavements, not just because it is illegal, but because I don't want to ram into people. I feel much safer on the road, where cyclists ought to be.
Cycling is not only a cardio workout, it is resistance training too, especially when I have to carry up my bike to my walk-up third floor flat. Very interesting experience in all, and very exhilarating.
When I feel up to it I will cycle to Pasir Ris where one of my students is. Taking the Kaki Bukit Tampines Ave 10 route then down Pasir Ris Drive 3. I hope I survive the distance.
It is not only a green way to travel, it is also cheaper.
