Cycling helps build lean muscle mass which causes body fat loss. During exercise, the pedaling action builds lean muscle mass in the hips and thighs which causes an increased rate of metabolism for as long as 48 hours after the exercise.
The benefits of cycling are extensive and include weight loss, stress relief, improved moods, boosted immune system, improved cardiovascular health, and lower blood pressure.
Cycling is a popular physical activity and in some cases, an efficient mode of transportation. It can be done by anyone at any fitness level and with or without using specialized equipment.
