Not only does cycling increase your fitness, flexibility, strength, and joint mobility, but it can also improve your posture and strengthen your bones. It’s an excellent fat-buster, particularly around the stomach, and even reduces your risk of disease. It’s also good for your mental health. Cycling has been proven to reduce anxiety, depression and stress. Last but not least, it works all of your major muscle groups, is low-impact, and most importantly, loads of fun.
