Cycling and your health

Studies have shown that regular cyclists enjoy the general health of someone approximately 10 years younger. Cycling is a low impact exercise - kinder on your joints than running and other high impact aerobic activities.

Many cyclists report that cycling regularly reduces their perceived levels of stress, promotes relaxation and improves balance and co-ordination. Brisk cycling burns around 500 calories per hour, helping to control your weight.

Why not try mountain biking for an excellent full body exercise? When out of the saddle, you're shifting your weight, sometimes carrying your bike, working your arms, chest, abs and improving your core stability.
