Top 5 Reasons You'll Never Regret Having a Bicycle

There are many uncertainties in life and when we happen to choose the wrong option, we usually regret that decision and try to rectify, if possible the wrongs we have committed because of them.  You might be at a crossroads now and you are having a hard time deciding which way to go; ahead of you are mostly uncertainties that could lead to either disasters or happy endings.  We believe that if you choose to buy a bicycle for whatever purpose, the results can only be delightful; you are in for a wonderful experience on two wheels.

Here below are the top 5 reason why we are sure you will never regret buying a bicycle for yourself and a loved one:

1. You get to bike with your significant other and not mind the time that passes. 

It's always a pleasure biking with someone you love, going places, discovering new things, sharing the love of biking without worrying what's over the next hill or how long or where this long stretch of road will lead to.  In fact, it's like you'd never want the road to end.  However, it's never a good idea to hold hands while biking but you have to admit, it does appear to be a very romantic scene.

2. You get to bike with your favorite pets who love to bike just as much as you do. 

It doesn't matter what your pet is; the important thing is you get to take them with you and you get to share bonding moments that no other activity can duplicate.  You may not go too far with your pets riding on your basket or running along side you on a leash, but just biking in the park or around the neighborhood would be enough to make your neighbor's dogs salivate in envy of yours.

 3. Just look at this kid! Need we say more?

Kids look at the world with unadulterated happiness and enjoyment.  Even little things that seem insignificant to adults can look awesome and they won't have anything else but those things that make them awesome too.  Will you deny your kids this simple pleasure as having her own bike?  How selfish a parent can you get! Just buy her one and then one for yourself too! (image from here)

4. Albert Einstein!

Only a tiny fraction of the cycling population may consider themselves a genius like Einstein himself, but wont' you feel like Einstein on your bike knowing that such a genius indeed rode bikes and even came up with this quotable quote: “Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving.” (image from here)

5. How about biking with at least 15,000 other bikers on the Tour of the Fireflies!

That's 15,000 reasons more to want to own a bike and just go! We can't give you any more numbers than that but you have to see them for yourself. (Well, maybe in the next editions of the Tour.) If these numbers intimidate you, why not try our monthly CMR- where at least one hundred or so cyclists participate, going around set routes in Metro Manila every third Sunday of the month!
