Numerous studies have shown that cycling is a great way to boost your physical and mental health. Regular physical activity such as cycling can help protect you from serious diseases such as obesity, heart disease, cancer, diabetes and arthritis, and cycling with friends and club-mates creates a great social environment that is recognised as helping with mental health. Cycling regularly is a great way to reduce the risk of serious health problems associated with a sedentary lifestyle.
Cycling is low-impact exercise that can be enjoyed by people of all ages, from young children to older adults. It is also fun, cheap and good for the environment too!
If you're thinking of taking up cycling, as with any form of exercise, begin slowly and build gradually. We recommend you check with your doctor beforehand.
