Playing basketball requires a lot of stamina which I lack. The nature of the sport is such that it requires a player to sprint up and down the court continuously. To overcome the flaw in my performance I needed to improve my stamina. In order to this, I picked up cycling as an activity. For it to be effective I had to be consistent. This activity taught me to make time for important things despite the long school hours, and be persistent.
Another reason that I picked up cycling as an activity was because it was eco-friendly as compared to working out at an air conditioned gym. Another thing that I had to consider was to ride responsibly to prevent accidents which would harm not only me but other people.
