Another benefit of Mountain Biking

I was reading the Business section of the LA Times (yes, I do read the other sections other than the funnies) and an ad caught my attention. A famous maker of exercise machines is selling a ‘Whole Body Vibration‘ Platform. The claim is that Whole Body Vibration helps improve circulation, strength, flexibility and balance by just standing on it. Here’s the kicker, the platform sells for about $500 bucks.

Rigid Bike

Mmmm, I can think of many hardtails that can sell for as much or less than that! Better yet, get a full rigid bike, find yourself a nice bumpy downhill, sit, relax and experience the benefits of ‘Whole Body Vibration‘. Oh yeah, if you decide to ride back up the hill, it will help you improve your cardiovascular strength. (Added Bonus).
