The World Health Organisation has encouraged Older Adults to follow some of these steps to keep healthy during the COVID-19 pandemic:
1. Keep to your regular routine as much as possible and maintain a daily schedule for yourself including sleeping, meals, exercise and activities.
2. Stay socially connected. Use the telephone, video-calls or messaging.
3. Be physically active every day. Reduce long periods of sitting and set up a daily routine that includes at least 30 minutes of exercise.
4. Drink water and eat healthy and well-balanced meals.
Bike riding is a great way to exercise and socialise with friends and family at the same time. A gentle reminder to make sure your bike helmet is road-ready so you can enjoy your ride safely. Also, ensure you keep up social distancing requirements as it is a form of exercise permitted under the COVID-19 government guidelines.
Benefits to your health and fitness from bike riding:
▪️ Low impact – less likely to have an injury or strain
▪️ Increased cardiovascular fitness, strength and flexibility
▪️ Cycling can be a low intensity form of exercise or built up to a demanding and high intensity workout
▪️ A fun way to get fit outdoors
▪️ Time-efficient and as a mode of transport, cycling replaces sedentary time spent driving motor vehilces with healthy exercise
▪️ Decreases stress levels
