May is National Bike Month and as far as exercise goes, biking may just be the new athleisure craze. Our parents and even our grandparents have probably had the pleasure of riding for fun and for fitness. As they say, every good trend comes back in style. This month is as good as any to give it a try if you've been curious about this pastime.

The question then becomes how are you going to spend National Bike Month this year? Starting out with an at-home bike from a cycle house like SoulCycle may be the way to go if you are unsure about what fitness cycling has to offer. (And of course, there's the infamous Peloton brand, among other indoor-cycling brands offering the same services.) Or, if you want to bike without the pressure, stick to biking around the neighborhood. This way you get a feel for how far you can take your bike adventures.
