First of all, walking has its own charm. But … it’s not always fun. Try walking to work every morning if you think otherwise. On the other hand, while riding a bike you can get the velocity of the sprinting hound while using the same two legs and investing the same power as walking in the park.
It is also … more fun
Second. You burn more calories by riding your bike and listening to the wind than walking in the park.
By walking for an hour in the park, you burn merely 396 kcal, which is about … one of my soups.
Riding your bicycle for one hour at 14-15 km/h burns around 800 kcal. That’s around … one of my main dishes or working as an IT for about 4 hours.
Don’t mind me talking whole 3 sentences for calories -> there is a reason 😉
Riding a bike has less impact on your joints. The only bad thing is – your bottom will be sore from the saddle for the first week. Even with VERY expensive saddle with Silicone. But that never stopped me wanting to ride more and more when there is at least a bit of time.
Anyway. It pays to use the bike instead of your legs. It’s faster, more fun, a bit risky in the big city but you know what they say – City transportation killed more people than AIDS 😀
