Cycling Health Benefits

How is cycling good for you?

  • It burns a lot of calories - cycle consistently and it'll keep you toned and trim.
  • It's low-impact - it's easier on your joints than a lot of other sports.
  • It'll improve your cardio - cycling will be great for your heart and lungs, which in turn will bring you a whole load of other health benefits.
  • It's good for the brain - exercise releases endorphins to the brain, so if you cycle a lot, you could be happier and less stressed.

  • There's no age barrier - anyone can get on a bike, no matter how old they are.
  • You don't have to be any good - people of all abilities can get on a bike and pedal.

After Britain's Olympic and Tour de France success, cycling is now the third most popular recreational activity in the UK. Over 3 million people ride their bike every month but, while we know how fun and cheap cycling can be, it's also a really healthy hobby.
