Benefits of Riding a Bike.

I want to ride my bicycle.
I want to ride my bike.
I want to ride my bicycle.
I want to ride it where I like!

We definitely needed a little theme song for this post as it’s the beginning of our first ‘summer series’ blogs, we are thinking of also adding a BBQ summer series… because who doesn’t love a good BBQ?!

Introducing: ‘the merrymakers bike ride’.

You heard it here first, this summer we pledge to drive less and ride more. We can think of a million benefits of riding a bike. Not only is it good for our health but we too are doing our bit for the environment. 

The benefits of riding a bike:

  • no carbon emissions
  • works our legs + butt (it’s like incidental exercise!)
  • no feeling can beat the wind in your hair
  • saves you money on parking + petrol (this will be going toward our lulu lemon fund)
  • ours have baskets big enough for groceries, lunch + our handbag!
  • it makes us happy
  • and apparently the earth sends extra love to those on bicycles (this is scientifically documented… maybe).

So meet our bikes: Harry + Freddy (they are twins).  Vintage style, custom (merry)made bikes thanks to our friends at Cell Bikes. Aren’t they just the cutest?! They are everything we ever dreamed of in a bike + we can’t wait to share our adventures with you. In fact, during our very first test drive, c got swooped by a magpie… twice… a little taste of what’s to come?! Eek!

If you have a bike, we’d love to meet it, leave us a comment + tell us all about it!

Always merrymaking,

Emma + Carla
