7) YOU’LL GET OUTDOORS
Want to feel alive? Studies show that a 20-minute dose of fresh air promotes a sense of vitality and rejuvenation equal to that provided by a cup of joe, minus the jitters. Just imagine what a 2-hour bike ride will do for your well-being and overall sense of kicking ass at life. You’ll also get in touch with your inner-child, bringing you back to the days when life wasn’t about crunching numbers or furiously typing away in a cubicle, but of making the most of simple pleasures.
8) YOU’LL MEET SOME GREAT PEEPS
Mountain bikers tend to be a pretty happy-go-lucky breed. Perhaps it’s all that exercising. Or the fresh air. Or the nature-loving. Regardless, happy people naturally tend to flock towards other happy people. So join a fat-tire club and you’re bound to meet good-natured, like-minded folks with a propensity for laughter and a penchant for good brews.
