Just getting up and moving for 30 minutes every day—even in short bouts—can make a difference. Taking a 10-minute walk during lunch, climbing the subway stairs, running out to do an errand—it all helps burn calories and enhance your health. These small steps also help lower your chances of diabetes, heart disease, hypertension, arthritis and other chronic health conditions
New York City is more bike-friendly than ever. On-street bike lanes have almost doubled, from 220 miles to 420 miles since 2006, and more paths are now physically separated from traffic to make your outings safer. Where are these bike lanes? See NYC DOT's NYC Cycling Map
If you don't want to bike alone, there are NYC groups with organized rides such as Time's Up.
