Cycling appeals to everyone, from toddlers to pensioners, able-bodied and people with disabilities. Everyone can enjoy cycling if they have the right equipment. This would explain why cycling is the third most popular recreational activity in the UK.
As with all physical activity, cycling has many benefits which include:
Building strength and muscle tone
Improving cardiovascular fitness
Reducing your risk of health problems
Controlling or reducing your weight
Reducing stress and improving mood
A time-efficient mode of transport
Like walking, cycling is a great way of keeping fit and incorporating it very easily into your daily schedule. Thousands of people take to the road each day to cycle to work, why not join them?
