Cycling as exercise: why you should get on your bike today
Cycling is a low-impact approach to enhance cardio, stamina, belly fat, lower body strength, and mental wellness.
It's an aerobic, cardiovascular workout that needs the heart and lungs to send oxygen-rich blood to the lower leg muscles so they can move the rider ahead.
How much cycling builds muscle depends on training frequency and resistance.
The US Department of Health and Human Sciences suggests 300 minutes a week of cycling or aerobics to lose weight.
Cycling is low-impact and gentle on the knees, plus you can change the resistance and seat height.
Depending on your effort, gears, and terrain, you may pedal hard or light.
