It’s beyond doubt that cycling is good for you. It’s exercise and transport at the same time. (Ever tried to swim to work?). All forms of regular exercise are of benefit to the body but cycling is especially good because the bicycle acts as a supportive platform, reducing the risk of impact injuries. You don’t have to be as super-fit as this to enjoy cycling. All it takes is a few gentle rides of about five miles, ridden at a moderate pace, and you’ll soon be strong enough to tackle ten mile jaunts with ease, or even long distance charity rides and cycle tours.
