There are many benefits to getting outside and riding your bike any time of year. It goes way beyond the obvious physical benefits, riding your bike can help to elevate your mental and emotional wellbeing. Understanding the benefits that getting out and riding has on your health and wellbeing can help you to handle stresses better when you cannot get outside.

The Physical Benefits of Getting Outside on a Bike

Movement is important for your body. It increases circulation, and respiration while also boosting your metabolism to burn energy and fat.
Without that boost in energy and efficiency, mental clarity and focus can suffer.

Exercise is essential for your body and mind to function at its peak performance level. Cycling has some unique benefits that allow you to really take advantage of what exercise can offer, and it is essential to train outside to get some of these benefits.

Getting outside in the open air and practicing deep breathing opens and clears your lungs. The powerful breathing that cycling regularly develops stretches and strengthens many of your core muscles, opens your chest increasing lung capacity, and helps you to clear accumulated particulate matter from your lungs.

Indoor air quality, unless treated is dramatically worse than outdoor air quality. Getting outside on your bike allows you to take advantage of exercising in the best possible environment for your lungs. Cycling does so much more than that though.

The Mental Benefits of Getting Outside on a Bike

This is highly personal with many different potential answers, and there is overlap between the relative benefits to your physical and emotional health as well. There are some specific mental benefits that getting outside on a bike offers everyone.

Riding your bike is a kind of moving meditation. Many riders will report feeling like this is one of the few times that their mind is quiet. Having a quiet mind allows your brain space to work without having to address your thoughts and feelings as directly.
This space and activity can help your brain to process complex thoughts and ideas while also increasing the supply of blood and oxygen. This basic change in perception and reduction in internal mental stimulus can literally make color brighter and perceptions richer. The creative
afterglow this can induce is very healthy and helpful.

The Emotional Benefits of Getting Outside on a Bike

If the mental benefits of getting outside on your bike are highly personal, the emotional ones are even more so. There are so many different potential causes of emotional stimulus and how we react to them is highly individual. No matter who you are or what level of athlete you are the emotional benefits of getting outside on your bike are much the same though.

Living an engaged life has become a popular term, and in many respects it can help you to address the uniqueness of the moment. Feeling engaged, locked in, or focused would likely rank high on the list of potential benefits of cycling to many riders. What is interesting is that much of the emotional benefit derived from getting outside on your bike might be what is disengaged.

Physical, mental or emotional stresses cause difficulty and illness. The effect on your body and wellbeing can be overwhelming. Any stress or pain is a depressant to your body and moods. Movement and physical activity help to eliminate those stimuli, even if just for a time.

The key to this process is proprioception or the awareness of the position and movement of the body. Nerve impulse from proprioception travels faster than pain signals, out competing them for the use of the nerve pathways. So much like the ability of cycling to clear your mind of
thoughts, it can also clear your mind of your perception of different physical pains.

The benefits of getting outside on a bike are many, weaving through the fabric of your existence. There is no real definition in the borders between the physical, mental and emotional benefits of riding a bike outdoors. It gives us so much and asks relatively little from us in return.
It is an honor and a privilege to be part of something so great.

We could not be more excited for spring to be on its way. We have made so many upgrades and updates to our website and our store. We have hats, and koozies and even custom Fetty’s Cycle Service water bottles for sale. We have spent the winter building new bikes that will certainly be very popular come warmer weather.

Over the past 5 years we have slowly and steadily established ourselves as the premier and ONLY bicycle shop in the Pocono’s and Northeast PA that will come directly to you. One of our favorite parts of this business and this business model is to see the expression of our customers when they may very well at first be skeptical and uncertain of how a Mobile Bicycle shop operates, but once they book an appointment online and see the ease they are thrilled to just set back and relax while we take care of their issues. Often many times, once we establish relationships with these customers these choose to not even be home while we perform our services. Giving them more time to run other errands and check things off their list.

Now is the time to start thinking about getting your current bikes serviced or getting a new bike (starting @ $299.99) for the upcoming season. Our mobile optimized site offers for online appointment booking with many different options and price points. We are going to offer for the foreseeable future 10% off all labor costs for any appointments booked online. All our same pricing still applies, but there is an incentive for booking on our simple platform.

Our phone still works and we still enjoy speaking will all of our customers. We will most usually send a text or make a call to confirm the appointment with you anyway. If you prefer.

Thanks for reading and we will see you soon.

About Fetty's Cycle service

My Story

My Story https://www.fettyscycleservice.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/02/fullsizeoutput_83a-scaled-e1615215863137.jpeg 500 335 Fetty's Cycle Service Fetty's Cycle Service //www.fettyscycleservice.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/02/Fettys-Final-logo-300x173-1.png

The journey of this whole business really has a neat and pretty humble beginning.   Myself personally have over 15 year’s experience in the bicycle industry.  I started at a young age working in a very successful brick and mortar bike shop, and was very fortunate that the owner kind of took me in.  It was at that  bicycle shop where I have learned stuff that I really still use to this day.  My mom and dad bought me some of my first bicycle specific tools at around age 13-14, a few of which I actually still use every day.  There were so many things I learned along the way, that I never dreamed that I would use to operate this business.

The whole concept of Fetty’s Cycle Service really started organically when several years ago some of my very good customers NOW, caught wind that I was knowledgeable with bikes.   I would either pick the bikes up and take them with me or work on them onsite with what was a pretty small mobile operation compared to what we have now.  For the First year, I was super fortunate for some of those really good customers to carry me thru.

After that first year I really saw the potential in this business.  I knew that customers loved not having to take their bikes back and forth to the bike shop.  And I knew that I really enjoyed traveling around and meeting new customers, getting to work on bikes and helping folks get to enjoy their bikes and cross something off their list with minimal effort on their part. We are really just changing the way that folks view what a bicycle shop can be.

Since those first days, we have evolved to now operate out of our fully equipped Ford Transit connect van. We have greatly expanded our website and our online booking platform.  You can always give us a call or text, but a great feature about this is that you can go online any time and book an appointment to get your bikes serviced on your schedule.  Estimates are most usually free.  We are fully stocked with parts to repair most any bike.  We carry everything from tires and tubes, to brake pads, Chains, water bottles, flashy safety lights and tons more inventory.

Like I mentioned, we do sell new bikes from Raleigh and Diamondback and a few smaller brands as well as racks for your car to carry the bikes.   One common question we get is how are you going to sell me a bike at my house that fits me correctly?  Once the customer calls, we will discuss things like height, weight, riding style and budget.  I will then take a few models out of my inventory and bring them to you.  We can discuss then more details and get you the best bike for you.  I will get you fitted correctly and you have a new bike ready to enjoy!

Really the biggest takeaway from this business is service and convenience, if nothing else.   Over the years and the relationships I have developed, I have really grown to take the customers satisfaction personally. The only real complaint we get is that folks wish they would have found us sooner.  Usually once a customer uses us, they don’t go back to the traditional way.  As long as my customers are satisfied and they keep spreading the word, I am confident we will be around for a long time.
