Cycling is a wonderful workout that keeps you active. It can help shape a healthy lifestyle, both physically and mentally. Cycling can help to protect you from serious diseases such as stroke, heart attack, some cancers, depression, diabetes, obesity and arthritis. Cycling is easy to fit into your daily routine by riding to the shops, park, school or work.

Benefits Of Cycling

  1. Exercise can boost your mood: there’s the basic release of adrenalin and endorphins, and the improved confidence that comes from achieving new things.
  2. Cycling increase your metabolism and build muscle, which allows you to burn more calories, even while at rest.
  3. Cycling strengthens your heart muscles, lowers resting pulse and reduces blood fat levels.
  4. People who cycled for more than 30 minutes per day had a 40 per cent lower risk of developing diabetes.
  5.  Cycling doesn’t just burn fat: it also builds muscle – particularly around the glutes, hamstrings, quads, and calves. Muscle is leaner than fat, and people with a higher percentage of muscle burn more calories even when sedentary.
  6. Cycling improves overall function in your lower body and strengthen your leg muscles without overstressing them. It targets your quads, glutes, hamstrings, and calves.
  7. Cycling also works your core muscles, including your back and abdominals. Maintaining your body upright and keeping the bike in position requires a certain amount of core strength.
  8. Cycling can ease feelings of stress, depression, or anxiety. Focusing on the road while you’re cycling helps develop concentration and awareness of the present moment. This may help take your focus away from the mental chatter of your day.
