Bicycling Helps Beat Cancer
Cancer hates a healthy body. Exercise is a key element in having a healthy body. Bicycling is great exercise. It’s as easy as one, two, three!
The Cancer Journeys Foundation has created a bicycling club using the Strava.com app. The group is free to join and you can track your personal miles and add your rides to our overall goal of #RidingCancerIntoTheGround.
Once you log enough miles for a ride around the world – 24,906.1 miles at the equator – you quality to snag one of our limited edition Around The World cycling jerseys from Primal.
How to Get Started on Your Ride Around the World
- Create your free Strava.com account
- Search for “Cancer Journeys Foundation” under cycling and join our group
- Ride and log your miles
- Email us when you’ve finished [It took me 10 years to finish, but it was great fun and it kept me health!]
Simple Cycling Mileage Tracking
I like to exercise and cycling is one of my favorite was to relax and decompress. But I’m also a bit of a numbers guy and I like to track my progress.
Following my prostate cancer treatment in 2003, I created a simple Excel Spreadsheet to track my data. Over time, I included some simple metrics like: morning heart rate, weight, miles ridden (this is how I tracked my Around the World Mileage), elevation climbed, riding time, and calories burned.
Now, I include my walks with my wife. It’s fun for me to look back and see what I’ve done. I can tell that when my mileage is down my emotional state suffers a bit.
I’m happy to share a copy with you. Just complete the contact form below and I’ll send one along.
