Street Bike Riding vs. Stationary Bikes



Are you thinking about getting into bike riding this year? Or maybe you’re trying to decide whether you want to invest in womens bicycles for sale or a stationary bike that you can use indoors. No matter what your situation may be, here are a few things you should know about the differences between street bike riding vs. stationary bikes.

Is the Climate Affecting Your Outdoor Riding?

Outdoor riding is usually preferred by people who love getting extra sunshine and having a destination to ride to. But for people who live in harsh climates, it may not be feasible to enjoy outdoor riding. For example, if you have a long winter season or if your summers are extremely hot, you may find that riding indoors on a stationary bike is a safer option for your health.

Depending on where you live, you may want to buyelectric bikes for seniors to help you enjoy outdoor riding in nice weather and a stationary bike for indoor riding in inclement weather. There are many people who take this dual approach to their bike riding and training.

Though buying both a street bike and a stationary bike can be expensive, you’ll find that some bike shops offer Affirm bicycle financing. This can help you afford your bicycle purchase by making monthly payments on it instead of buying it outright.

Fresh Air and a Healthy Mind

Riding on a stationary bike is a good idea if you’re trying to train over the winter for outdoor spring and summer riding. It’s also a good option for bad weather days. But there’s no denying that riding outdoor comes with a variety of health benefits that indoor riding simply can’t offer.

Fresh air can work wonders for your mood and can help you feel stronger and more invigorated than stagnant indoor air. Riding outdoors also has the benefit of sun exposure. While too much sun can be harmful to your skin and health, getting a moderate amount of sunlight each day is very important for your body’s production of vitamin D.

Vitamin D is also known as “the sunshine vitamin” because your body can’t produce it without exposure to sunlight. People with low levels of vitamin D are more likely to be depressed, irritable and overweight than people who receive sufficient vitamin D. While you can always supplement with vitamin D if your levels are naturally low, getting regular exposure to sunlight is a better way to boost your vitamin D levels.

Even if you have a nice stationary bike, you should try to get outside on a road bike whenever possible so that you can boost your mood and achieve a healthy state of mind. If you’re susceptible to feeling blue or depressed, pay attention to how much better you feel after consistently riding your bike outdoors for days or weeks.

Deciding Which Type of Bike to Purchase

As you can see, there are benefits both road bikes and stationary bikes can offer. If you have the ability to buy both, do so. That way you can take advantage of your stationary bike when the weather is bad or when you have limited time to work out, and use your road bike for those days when the weather is good.
