Fascinating Cycling Facts: It’s an all-round health boosting sport

We all know that riding a bicycle has a wonderful affect on both your physical and mental health. However, from time-to-time we can all struggle to find the energy to saddle up.

If you’re ever wavering just remember these fascinating cycling facts and statistics:

  • Pedal on past Cancer: A long-term study carried out by a team of Finnish researchers found that those who took part and exercised at a moderate level for at least 30 minutes a day were half as likely to develop cancer as those who didn’t
  • According to the Chief Dietician at St George’s Hospital in London, “moderate exercise makes immune cells more active, so they’re ready to fight off infection”
  • The British Heart Foundation released data highlighting that around 10,000 fatal heart attacks could be avoided each year if people kept themselves fitter and healthier. Cycling just 20 miles a week reduces your risk of heart disease to less than half that of those who take no exercise, it said.
