Cycling is a great way to be healthy, active and fit with many wide ranging health benefits.

If being active was a pill we would be rushing to prescribe it. Physical activity is essential for health and reduces the risk of many preventable diseases and conditions from cancer to depression. (Public Health, England)

  • Look good

The health benefits of cycling are well documented and wide ranging. We really recommend it to people who are trying to improve their general health, as well as people who are looking to alleviate wide range of health problems.

  • Regular cycling can help you loose weight and improve your fitness
  • Cycling is the third most popular recreational activity in the UK
  • Cycling is a low impact type of exercise, so it’s easier on your joints than running or other high-impact aerobic activities
  • Someone who weighs 80kg (12st9lbs) will burn more than 650 calories with a 60 minute ride, and tone their legs and bottom
  • Sleep better – Exercising outside exposes you to daylight. This helps get your circadian rhythm back in sync and also rids your body of cortisol, the stress hormone that can prevent
    deep, regenerative sleep. (Professor Jim Horne, Loughborough University Sleep Research Centre / bike Radar)
  • Look younger – Studies have shown that regular cyclists enjoy the general health of someone approximately 10 years younger
  • Reduce the chances of chronic disease such as heart disease, diabetes and cancer
  • Improved sex life
  • Improved mental health
  • Stronger immune system
  • Be green
