Depending on intensity, an hour of biking can burn in excess of 500 calories. Additional health benefits of cycling include:
A person can reduce fatigue by participating in low- and moderate-intensity biking, according to a 2008 study. Over the course of six weeks, researchers analyzed 36 participants and found that those engaging in consistent exercise had more energy than their sedentary counterparts.
Improved Cardiovascular Health
Cycling stimulates blood flow by increasing heart rate. In addition, cycling strengthens the heart, making a person less susceptible to coronary heart disease.
A perfect activity for those suffering from joint conditions, biking develops the core while building muscles, particularly in the lower half of the body. Hamstring, calf, and quadricep muscles gain strength from consistent training. Likewise, gluteal muscles become more defined.
