New here. trying to cycle to get in shape
Hi, I'm trying to restore my old bike so I can get back into shape. I'm 21 and I really have no motivation to get up and run or workout, but I know that I will get up and ride a bike. Thing is I don't have one of those professional city bikes. I have 2 bikes, a walmart mountain bike that I haven't ridden since 05 (but I can still fit on comfortably), and a Mongoose BMX single speed bike. the walmart bike is a 21 speed that is essentially the same as this http://www.walmart.com/ip/NEXT-Power...-Bike/17132924
. I need a chain for both bikes, as they are rusted from sitting outside so many years (unless there is a way for me to fix it) and I also need to buy new inner tubes. also is there a way for me to get rust off the gears? the gears only have light rust.
Will these bikes be useful for me to ride in the city? I live in a hilly neighborhood. I was just gonna use them to ride around the block a few times 2 or 3 times a day when I ride, and attack the steep hills. will this help me get a 6-pack? I was also wondering if I started cycling, would my running form improve. one reason why I am not motivated to run is because everyone told me that I run awkwardly when I play basketball. Don't bash me because I'm relatively new to cycling and I have a very very small budget (just enough to cover new bike parts such as chains, inner tubes, and a lock possibly)
