David here from Bike Trainer World shared with Healthy Lombard that someone said, “you can’t be sad while riding a bicycle.”
This statement is actually backed by science as you will find out later in the article.
For many individuals, cycling is a casual activity or a means of transport. However, cycling is also profoundly beneficial to your mind, body, and soul.
So, how exactly does cycling help?
Cycling and Weight Loss
Losing weight is not fun for most people. Depending on how much you aspire to lose, you may have to go on a strict diet and take on intense physical exercises. But what if there was a better way of doing it? Bike riding is an effective and fun weight loss strategy.
Cycling for one hour at a moderate speed burns 400 to 600 calories. The exact number of calories depends on a few factors such as your weight and gender. You can always increase the number by doing intense and mixed exercises.
Overweight people are not the only ones that can benefit from this.
