Good for health
Bicycling is a form of “Aerobic”, which causes less impact. With bicycles, you can go anywhere at any time of the day. The practice by bike is also quite simple, does not require any difficult techniques and especially you can not forget even if you spend a long time. All you need is a bike, a bit of determination, and you get the benefits of cycling extremely well.
According to research by the British Medical Association, cycling helps burn about 300 calories per hour. If you ride regularly for 30 minutes a day, you can lose up to 11kg in a year. In addition, it also helps you increase your metabolic rate after each trip you complete. According to the British Medical Association, cycling 20km/ week can reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease by 50%.
In addition to being good for the heart, cycling is especially good for people with high blood pressure. A little cycling time every day can prevent high blood pressure, help lower heart rates and prevent strokes. Regular cycling has been shown to reduce the risk of colon, prostate and pancreatic cancer. In addition, cycling is very good for the lungs and against endometrial cancer. Any kind of regular exercise helps you reduce stress and depression. Outdoor cycling is also a way to “make friends” with nature and enjoy the fresh air, dispel any sadness and stress everyday. Thanks to that, your quality of life is also improved.
Like other sports, cycling contributes to toning muscles. A week of inactivity reduces the strength of your muscular system by 50% and can cause muscle weakness in the long run. Therefore, during cycling, most of the body’s muscles will be activated such as the abdomen, shoulders, arms, and calves … while toning the muscles in the waist and abdomen. This makes the muscular system stronger and more efficient.
