Why should you cycle on holidays?

Is good for your mood !

Our main aim when we go on holiday is to relax and clear our heads.     If your goal is to forget about your daily worries for a few days, then cycling is for you. As well as giving you a great deal of oxygen, which is very good for your brain, cycling increases the level of certain neurotransmitters, in particular dopamine and serotonin, which are mood regulators. This triggers a feeling of psychological relaxation, pleasure and euphoria. In short, everything you want during your holidays!

The best way to explore a city

Getting around by bike during your holiday means taking more or less known roads. Unlike the metro, bus or car, you are outside all the time. In addition to allowing you to perfect your tan, cycling gives you the opportunity to observe the landscape, monuments and architecture around you more closely. It can also lead you to take lesser-known roads, and thus make discoveries. This is the best way to explore a city!

Allows you to be physically active during your holiday

Cycling during your holiday allows you to maintain your physical health and avoid a sedentary lifestyle! As well as being good for your heart and breathing, it is a non-weight bearing exercise, which is ideal for people with joint pain or injuries. A sport that can be practised at any age, whether you are a great sportsman or not!

More ecological, cheaper and easier!

Unlike the car, public transport or scooter, the bicycle has a neutral ecological footprint, which is a very important concept today.

Moreover, the car can be a considerable waste of time. Between the traffic jams, the traffic problems, or the ordeal to find a place, it is a real waste of time! In Barcelona, you can find 240 km of cycle lanes, which allow you to move around freely, avoiding traffic problems.

This mode of transport also has the advantage of being inexpensive. At Born Bike Tours Barcelona, you can rent your bike for only 18€ for 24 hours, which is on average double the price of a scooter!

So don’t hesitate any longer, and come and rent a bike for your holidays!

We repeat: we love going through Barcelona by bicycle

April 10th, 2018

The “30 Days by Bicycle” challenge is still active in Barcelona, so, here you have some reflections in order to motivate you even more after this first training week.

If you have achieved the first week of pedaling, we are sure that you have seen a lot of the advantages of the bicycle and that you have achieved some of its challenges. Sharing your experiences in the social networks is the key to motivate and help other people. So, don’t stop doing that.

For example, you can talk about how pleasant it is when you arrive at work, or at any other place, after pedaling your bicycle: how you avoid traffic jams, how you enjoy the city environment, how you greet the other cyclists and how you activate your body as soon as you are awake. The physical exercise is a key element for motivation and creativity, we are sure that you have performed even better these working days.

In addition, you can talk about annoying fumes, which come from the other motorized vehicles -not the electrical ones, of course-. Imagine how nice the city could be without all the atmospheric and acoustic pollution.

And yes, you can talk about how you have overcome other things that were not so good, such as the rain of some of these days. We bet that it wasn’t as terrible as you imagined before leaving home. If you have the equipment, you will see that going by bicycle while it is raining is not a problem. In order to reach the step of leaving home, think about the importance of rain for the purpose of dispersing the polluting particles from the air. This always encourages us.

You can achieve the “30 days of biking” challenge. Do that for you and for your city.
