Biking Your Way to Better Health

10.03.2017

Riding a bicycle can be an excellent fitness activity.

Cycling is also a good way to cross-train, because it puts much less stress on your joints, knees, and hips than running or walking. Getting a good workout on a bike isn't always easy, though, because you have more time to recover — or to just coast.

Riding a bike can be one way to roll toward better health. Bicycling is great exercise that works your lungs and heart. It also works your muscles in the upper and lower parts of your legs. You can even ride a bike instead of driving.
