Re-Live the Tour de Yorkshire with FatBirds | Lifestyle

I can't believe it's a whole year since Le Tour de France started began in Yorkshire. If you've forgotten all about it (and how can you if you're from Yorkshire?!) you can read all about it in my post here. During the month of May we re-lived it over again with the Tour de Yorkshire but unfortunately as it wasn't near my hometown I didn't venture off to see any of the race. It was still spectacularly beautiful and thrilling to have such an event in Yorkshire. 

With their being such a buzz about the Tour de France, and again this year with the Tour de Yorkshire, there has been such an big uptake in cycling. Locally, a few more cycle groups have been created, and people are definitely paying a lot more interest to the sport. Cycling is such a good way to keep fit, and if it wasn't for the problems in my leg and my pelvis I would definitely be partaking rather than going to the gym. You get to explore the countryside like you can't in a car, whilst keeping fit, and seeing more of the great outdoors than you would normally. 

And even if you don't want to do it competitively, what a great way to get the whole family out and about to keep fit. There are several companies in Yorkshire offering cycling holidays, and there are lots of cycle routes and parks for you to explore, for all abilities and varying levels of intensity. 

FatBirds have a great range of bikes and safety equipment to go with them. They also offer advice on what bike would be best for you personally from men and women's bikes, to offering advice on what style of bike to buy, along with information on all the technical side of things too. Not only do they sell professional cycles, but they have bikes for casual cyclists too. FatBirds offer a complete service. Not only do they sell cycles, but they have a huge range of cyclist clothing, DVDs (so you don't have to cycle if you don't want to!), and can cover you with the nutrition side of things too. They also have a huge range of children's bikes, starting from a 7 month old balance bike so you can start them off early! And as your little one grows up, there is no need to use them as an excuse not to cycle as they have a large range of children's seats too. The whole family can enjoy themselves!

I hope this blog post inspires you to think about alternative ways to keep fit. It's certainly given me food for thought instead of going to the gym all the time!
