There are many ways to properly stay fit over 50. There are gym groups and at-home training programs. But bike tours offer a different kind of reward that goes beyond general exercise. There are many ways in which a biking tour can actually provide a brand new kind of enjoyment to your exercise routine. This is more than just getting exercise. This is a rejuvenating adventure!
Reward of the outdoors
One reason that exercise is often considered boring is because there is little pleasure in the process. Sure, there is the pleasure of feeling and looking healthy, but that is all in the end game. What is going to get us through the mornings when we do not want to work out? What is our motivation? Well, what if we got some kind of reward as we were working out? That would be different.
That is exactly what you get when going on a biking tour. You get to breathe in the fresh air. You get to see the trees and water. There is the reward of going outside and discovering new places. It may not seem as appealing at first, but the enjoyment absolutely sneaks up on you. You are no longer just working out. You are an adventurer in the open world.
Another benefit of going on bike tours is being able to find new routes and speeds. Working out starts to get boring when it becomes repetitive. Who wants to be doing the same pushups and pull-ups every day? Well, your body certainly doesn’t. That’s right, your body needs change. The muscles require exercise routines to be shaken up. Whenever your muscles master a certain challenge, they need something new.
When going on various bike tours, you will be rewarded with new areas to explore. Different routes give you different terrain to ride on. And over time, your body will be able to challenge itself. You will be able to go faster speeds than before.
Note: Any uncertainty in how fast your should travel is entirely dependent on your doctor’s orders.
Riding with friends
Overall, you certainly want your biking tour to be enjoyable. And enjoying it requires more than the outdoor pleasures. That is all fine and dandy, but it would be nice to have someone to enjoy it with. That is why our weekend and weeklong bike tours offer you the ability to ride in groups of like-minded people. These people could be friends that sign up for the ride or new friends that you make along the way.
