We All Can Benefit From Cycling
By dzijerdi, Jun 12, 2017

 Cycling is one of the best forms of exercise for numerous reasons. It is a very efficient form of human locomotion allowing coverage of long distances so riders can enjoy fresh air and please the senses aesthetically as they travel through country roads, mountains, farms, and lakes. This relaxing and enjoyable form of exercise has a tremendous mental health benefit.

Cycling has been associated with decreased risk of cardiovascular disease and various cancers. IT will enhance weight loss and increase the body's metabolism even when off the bike. Moreover, cycling is a low impact sport which would benefit people with overuse injuries and minimize damage to arthritic joints at the same time as increasing muscular conditioning and strengthening joint cartilage.

Whether you are a recreational athlete, runner, triathlete, or just trying to get into shape, cycling is the best form of exercise given the tremendous physical and mental health benefits and minimal impact trauma to the joints.

David A. Zijerdi, M.D.
