You have no idea how I long I have waited to say these words –
I am a Huffy Mom!
If you have been around, you know that I try my hardest to keep your and my family healthy and fit – we have talked a lot about food and fitness, but guess what – so many of you still don’t move enough and I totally get it – we are moms and there are so many things we must put ahead of ourselves – we have no time left for any physical activities. I am in the same boat – I am much more active in my imagination than I am in the real life. And here is another problem – if the last time you rode a bicycle you were 12, you might just be a bit intimidated of the process (including buying a bike).
Check out my sweet new ride – this is a Huffy Regatta Cruiser. Great look, lady frame, saddle bags, big seat – this is the shiniest ride on the block.
Huffy has an amazing line of bikes that are perfect for new riders and I can help you get over the stress of buying a bike, finding the right gear, and getting comfortable riding a bike once again.
How many calories can you burn biking?
The main factor that affects how many calories you burn riding at 10 mph is your weight. When you weigh more, it requires greater energy to move your mass through space. If you weigh 140 lbs. and ride at 10 mph, you burn about 38 calories per mile. If you weigh 180 lbs., you burn 49 calories per mile, and at 200 lbs., you burn 54 calories per mile, according to MyOptumHealth.com.
How much time do you really need for bicycle riding?
30 minutes? 15 minutes? Take your bicycle around the block or to the grocery store – it is the time you invest in yourself, so just find an excuse to get out and pedal.
The summer is almost over. What’s a point?
Summer is hot and might be difficult to ride for some. We actually get more miles out of bikes as a family in fall. So now it is actually a perfect time to start a biking hobby. Fall is just gorgeous time of the year and you might fall in love with it all over again.
Why do I like bike riding and you should too?
Here is truth – my biking time is my mom free time. I go as fast or as slow as I want to go. I listen to whatever music I want and I just enjoy the scenic routes I take. When we go as a family, my husband is the one hauling the trailer with kids. And what a great way to relax mentally? But biking with the kids is fun too, so let’s do it together
What do you want to talk about first? Picking the right bike? Finding good gear? Finding places to go to? Anything else?
