If you cycle 6 miles (10km) to and from work instead of driving, taking about 30 minutes each way, you could burn 15 to 20 lb. (7-9kg) of fat each year.
The first bicycle was made in 1817 by Baron von Drais and didn’t have any pedals. People walked it along. The original copy has been preserved to this day, and can be viewed at the city museum in Karlsruhe - Germany. Achieved a top speed of 10 km / h. (6.2 mph)
The bicycle as we know it today – with two wheels of the same size – looks almost exactly the same as one from 1900.
There are about a billion bicycles in the world, twice as many as motorcars. China has most bikes (almost 400 million) but the Netherlands has the most bikes per capita (people: 16,652,800, Bicycles: 16,500,000,Cyclists: ~99.1%).
In the USA, people use bikes for slimming and better feeling because cycling burns 600 calories an hour, but in some other countries people use bikes mostly for transportation needs. In the Netherlands 27% of all trips and 25% of trips to work are made by bike. The average distance cycled per person per day is 2.5 km.(1.5 mile) Danes cycle just over 1000 km (620 miles) a year per capita. The Dutch occupy second place, just under 1000 km (620miles). For comparison: USA cyclists: 32,3% and only 0,9% of all trips are made by bike. The average distance cycled per person is 0.1 km = 0.06 mile.
Take your inspiration from stylish celebrities cycling like Olivia Palermo, Miley Cyrus, Vivienne Westwood, Penelope Cruz, Lea Michele … They look absolutely stunning with their bikes. In heels. In suits. In style.
Если вместо того, чтобы каждый день ездить на работу (туда и обратно 10km) на машине, вы собираетесь ездить на велосипеде - Вы могли бы сжечь 7-9кг жира в год.
Первый велосипед был сделан в 1817 году бароном фон Drais (не было никаких педалей). Подлинный экземпляр сохранился в городском музее в Карлсруэ - Германия. Достигнуты максимальная скорость 10 км / ч
Велосипед, как его знаем сегодня - с двумя колесами одинакового размера - выглядит почти точно так же, как из 1900.
Есть около миллиарда велосипедов в мире, два раза больше чем автомобилей. На сегодняшний день насчитывается почти 400 млн.велосипедов в Китае. Это больше, чем в любой другой стране. Нo в Нидерландах самое большое число велосипедов на душу населения (людей: 16652800, Велосипеды: 16500000, велосипедистов: ~ 99,1%).
В США люди используют велосипеды для похудения и улучшения самочувствия поскольку езда на велосипеде сжигает 600 калорий в час, но в некоторых другиe страны, в основном используют велосипеды для транспортных нужд. В Нидерландах 27% всех поездок и 25% поездoк на работу производится на велосипеде. Среднее расстояние пройденное на человека в день составляет 2,5 км, у датчан pасстояние пройденное за год чуть более 1000 км на душу населения. (Голландцы занимают второе место, чуть меньше 1000 км) .
Для сравнения: в США велосипедистов: 32,3% и только 0,9% всех поездок совершаются на велосипеде. Среднее расстояние на одного человека в день составляет 0,1 км
Возьмите вдохновение от стильных знаменитостей, таких как Оливия Палермо, Майли Сайрус, Вивьен Вествуд, Пенелопа Крус, Lea Michele ... они выглядят совершенно потрясающе на велосипеде/ на каблуках! в костюмах! Стильно!
Could you make riding a bike look anymore fabulous?!

Нет, в нашем городе это опасно для жизни, честное слово! С огромной завистью смотрю на фотографии. А еще у нас суровая зима и 8 месяцев в году нет возможности так красиво выглядеть на этом прекрасном устройстве. Черт, уезжаю в Европу, я заслуживаю быть такой красоткой!))))ReplyDelete

Biking in heels isn't actually that difficult. I mean, it's your ball of the foot that's on the pedal, not your heel. :D
