Extend your life CYCLE
45-minute rides a week even after discounting other in?uences, such as body mass index (BMI) and smoking keeps you at signi?cantly lower risk of cardiovascular disease, type two diabetes, all types of cancer, high blood pressure and obesity and the body becomes much more ef?cient at defending itself and regenerating new cells, increasing your longevity.
Pedalling let's it beat better
Cycling just 20 miles a week reduces your risk of heart disease to less than half that of those who don\t.
Let your grey matter sparkle
Regular cycling helps build new brain cells in the hippocampus – the region responsible for memory, which deteriorates from the age of 30. It boosts blood ?ow and oxygen to the brain, which ?res and regenerates receptors.
Riding’s the way to keep the doctor at bay
Regular cycling makes immune cells more active, so they’re ready to ?ght off infection. Therefore, people who cycle for 30 minutes, ?ve days a week take about half as many sick days as couch potatoes.
Listen to your body language
Cycling tones your waistline and builds muscles, especially– your calves, your thighs, and your rear end.
