BICYCLING MAKES GETTING INTO SHAPE A BREEZE

 CHASKA, Minn., March 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Summer ... softball, soccer, baseball, beach volleyball, in-line skating, walking, running, swimming and bicycling. One of the things that makes summer great is the variety of activities that help you get into shape and stay active. Perhaps one of the easiest and most enjoyable summer activities is bicycling.
 The benefits of bicycling go far beyond getting outdoors to enjoy the sunshine. Bicycling provides one of the best non-jarring, cardiovascular workouts available. It contributes to weight loss, reduced blood pressure, improved body composition and increased muscle strength in the quadriceps, glutials and hamstrings. Because this activity provides a chance to relish the summer scenery, the psychological aspects of exercising outdoors are much greater than indoors.
 NordicTrack's Fitness Bikes(TM) are created specifically for riders looking to get fit while maximizing their time outdoors. Unlike other bicycles today, these bikes feature the luxury of a specially designed seat that allows the rider to sit in an extremely comfortable "heads up" position for better visibility. The bike features a unique ergonomical frame design that prohibits strain on the arms, wrists and shoulders. The Radial Gear(TM) transmission, an easy-to-use gear shifting mechanism, takes the intimidation out of riding a multi-speed bike. Simply press the shift lever and pedal forward to shift into higher gears, or backward to shift into lower gears. The Radial Gear system contains 100 fewer parts than the traditional complex derailleur gear cluster and needs virtually no maintenance.
 The user-friendly braking system provides three times the braking power with less effort than ordinary front and rear bicycle brakes. The Rim Band brake uses a cable that runs along a groove around the rim of the back tire. When the rider squeezes the hand brake, the bike is slowed by the cable tightening around the rear rim. This braking mechanism is much more reliable than other ordinary brakes and requires less exertion for a faster, more efficient stop.
 NordicTrack offers three models in the Fitness Bike line, the 14- speed, on/off road Pro-Performer for the biking enthusiast, available for $499.95; the one-speed Good Life Bike which is ideal for the mature rider for $199.95; and the nine-speed, innovative Fitness Bike that sells for $369.95. All models come with a two-year limited warranty and a 30-day free trial. For more information on NordicTrack's Fitness Bike models call 1-800-858-BIKE, ext. 2Y2C3.
