(Akiit.com) It’s hard to find the time to get in shape these days. There is always something that comes up in the time when you had planned to get yourself into fighting shape. There is an easy way to improve your health and fitness without having to worry about making the time for it. Biking to work. It’s perfect cardio and it’s an essential journey, it really is killing two birds with one stone. The only problem is what to do with your unwieldy bike? The solution is the amazing folding bike. Why exactly are folding bikes gaining popularity at such a rapid pace though?

Less Chance of it Being Stolen

Locking your bike to some railings or even in your work’s bike sheds may seem like a safe place to store your bike but unfortunately in the modern world it’s not always the case. People can simply and easily come along with bolt cutters and your bike is gone within seconds. With a folding bike this isn’t a problem because you can take the bike into work with you. All you have to do is fold it up, carry it into work and keep your bike next to your desk. The fact that it doesn’t take up a lot of space means that it won’t get in the way and you won’t get your boss hassling you. If you want to bike to work and want to remove the risk of your bike being stolen then a folding bike is definitely for you.

If You’re Running Late it is Practical

Imagine you overslept. You plan to ride faster than usual to get to work on time but it’s just not panning out that way. What can you do? Well if you have a folding bike then the solution is easier than you might think. If you’re close to the train station or subway then you can simply fold up your bike and hop on. It will save you time when you’re running late without taking away that essential cardio of the bike ride home. You can even hail a taxi if you’re really desperate. No matter what the situation is a folding bike will allow you to navigate it with ease.

It Will Save You Money

It may seem obvious but if you’re riding to work every day instead of driving your car then your fuel bills are going to fall. It’s not just the daily commute where you will save on your fuel costs though. If you like to ride your bike at the weekend then utilising a folding bike will help to save money there too. Transporting normal bikes on a roof rack increases wind resistance when driving which means that the cost of driving to where you plan to ride increases when you use a regular bike. Storing your folding bike inside the car stops the increased wind resistance and decreases your fuel bills.

If you want to improve your health, save yourself time and save money then an amazing folding bike is the perfect solution for you. It will ensure that you are able to get to your destination with ease and it won’t be long before your body feels the benefit of the increased cardio.
