Exercise Bicycle Stand Defends Against Weather
Many people have found riding their bike an excellent way to exercise and stay, or get,
into shape. Additionally, there are those who ride a bike for health reasons, such as rehabilitation or cardiac
care. Unfortunately, not everyone has a safe place to ride or the physical capability to ride outdoors. By using an
exercise bicycle stand, they can have the best of both worlds.
The weather does not always cooperate and many days due to rain or snow, it is impossible to ride outside. By
attaching a ten-speed bike to an exercise bicycle stand it can be used in much the same way as an exercise bicycle
and still give the avid rider the feel of getting their exercise.
The use of an exercise bicycle stand can also help those who can’t, or shouldn’t, ride on the road to get their
regular workout for their health. The bike attached to an exercise bicycle stand can be set up and used whenever
possible and doesn’t need to be disassembled after each use. It will essentially become a stationary bike without
the additional expense of buying one.
Known Benefits of Stationary Bikes
It is well known how the use of a stationary bike can improve your health. From building
leg muscles, helping people develop better breathing and for cardiac exercise. By using a regular bike on an
exercise bicycle stand can provide the same benefits without the interference of adverse weather conditions.
Various types of exercise bicycle stands are available at most leading sports stores for around $100 or less and
if you already own the bicycle, it can be a better investment than a stationary bike which typically cost between
$1000 and $2000. The speedometer on the bike can be used to measure the distance traveled and your speed, and for
those wanting to exercise for a specific amount of time, an accessory timer can be added or you can simply use a
Typically, an exercise bicycle stand will accept most bicycle sizes and styles by attaching to and raising the
rear powered tire off the ground so the bike doesn’t move. A ten-speed bike is recommended, however, as the
adjustment of the gears will better simulate the resistance presented by a stationary bike and can be adjusted at
any time by the rider.
If you already own a multi-speed bike for outdoor use, by investing in an exercise bicycle stand you can turn it
into a stationary bike and receive the same benefits without the added financial expense.
