So from peddling to passion, sweating to seduction getting on two wheels has many more benefits than helping you to just conquer the daily commute. Another reason why cycling like the Dutch is a habit we all need to adopt.
Not only does cycling help you to keep trim but it turns out its good for your sex life too! (Minus the chaffing – there’s nothing sexy about that!)
With more bicycles than residents across The Netherlands major cities see almost 70% of all journeys made on two wheels. People who are cycling to and from work as opposed to the commute by car or train are apparently having better sex.
A survey showed that people who cycle to work in the Netherlands are indeed happier and their sex life is better since adopting peddle power.
Now cycling and sex may not have a direct correlated link for some people but I thought I would try and through some light on what other factors might be contributing to this finding.
- Cycling like many cardio sports allows the mind to settle and cuts oneself off from the worries of daily life (bar the stress of traffic and the sweaty state you end up in. Those worries are still real.) The less work stress you take home equals a better home atmosphere with friends and loved ones and more desire for passion in the sheet.
- Exercise increases stamina which in turn increases…you get the picture.
- Biking is a great form of exercise, exercise increases body confidence which makes getting saucy a little less daunting.
- Cycling is good on your joints, reducing wear and tear in ones exercise regime gives more scope for extra curricular activities.
Whether you don your helmet and take to the pavements or not, if you needed an excuse to oil your chain and get that heart rate up this is as good as any.
