The Health Benefits of Cycling
To stay healthy and fit, you need to be physically active. Regular physical exercise can help protect you from serious diseases such as obesity, heart disease, cancer, mental illness, diabetes, and arthritis. Cycling regularly is one of the best ways to reduce the risk of health problems associated with a sedentary lifestyle.
Cycling is a healthy, low-impact activity that can be enjoyed by people of all ages, from young children to the elderly. It is also fun, cheap, and good for the environment.
Riding to work or shopping is one of the most effective ways to combine regular exercise with your daily life. More people ride bicycles every day for transportation, entertainment and sports.
It only takes a couple of hours or more a week to fully improve your health. Cycling is:
Low impact: less stress and injury than most other forms of exercise. Good muscle training-all major muscle groups are used when riding a bicycle. Simple: Unlike other sports, cycling does not require high levels of physical fitness. Most people know how to ride a bicycle, and once they learn it, they won’t forget it.
Good for strength and endurance– cycling can increase endurance, strength and aerobic exercise. If you are recovering from an injury or illness, you can start cycling at a very low intensity according to your preferences, but it can prepare you for high-intensity physical exercise.
A fun way to shape your body-the adventure and excitement you get from downhill and outdoor activities mean that you are more likely to continue pedalling regularly than other sports activities that keep you indoors or that require time or location.
Time efficiency: As a means of transportation, riding a bicycle replaces the sedentary (sitting) time of driving a motor vehicle or riding a tram, train or bus through healthy exercise.
