Many believe that cycling helps improve your balance as you develop more leg muscles due to it. Anyone who hasn’t cycled in his or her life will most likely struggle to balance the bike at first, and it’s totally normal.
Like most things in life, you will find that balance after many attempts at it, and you may fall a couple of times at first.
It’s not as strenuous as running or swimming, and as a result it burns less calories in the same time period. That being said, it is a good way to lose weight and you can do it for hours without tiring yourself too quickly.
If you want to increase weight loss through bicycling, try going at a much faster rate instead of just cruising leisurely.
4. Reduces risk of heart disease
Riding a bike not only promotes weight loss through calorie-burning, but may also reduce the risk of heart disease.
A study by a journal Heart seem to suggest that if you commute using a bike, by foot or even with public transport, your risk of heart diseases and stroke is reduced.
Although cycling was not the main group in the research, it still has some merit.
Using a bicycle is an eco-friendly way to move around the city especially in a really polluted and crowded one. You can reduce pollutants in the air by not being another contributor, and also effectively reducing your own carbon footprint.
