Cycle your way to good health

I'm one of those people trying to find the easiest way to get fit.
You don't have to sweat it out in the gym for hours every week to stay trim.
I tried going to the gym once but it didn't workout. We registered for six months and manage to use it for a month. Rest of the 5 months we paid for it, but never used it. At the end I thought how many new clothes and shoes I could have for that money spend on the gym  :-)

So, what is the easiest way to get fit?
The answer is cycling, running, long walks and using the stairs instead of the elevator or escalator.

My favourite sport is cycling. I cycle home from work with my boyfriend almost every day and it’s one of the best part of my day. We are having so much fun cycling together, we stopping to take nice photos or talking about what we see. During a weekend we bike for longer and stop for a beer or lunch along the way. 
When I started biking, at the beginning I got tired very easily, but within a month riding a few miles, I noticed how much I improved. Now I'm cycling 6-7 days/week and easily. More I do it, more I like it. 
It is a nice way to see the city and one of the easiest ways to exercise. You can ride a bicycle almost anywhere, at any time of the year and without spending a fortune.

That's me returning from a cycling trip
