Health benefits of cycling
Cycling is one of the easiest ways to fit exercise into your daily routine because it's also a form of transport. It saves you money, gets you active and is good for the environment.
It's a low-impact type of exercise, so it's easier on your joints than running or other high-impact aerobic activities. But it still helps you get into shape.
By incorporating cycling into your daily routine it will help to:
- keep you fit
- boost your health
- reduce your risk of chronic illness
- keep your weight in check
…and it’s great for maintaining good mental and emotional health.
RideWise is working with the Cycling for Health scheme which offers Nottingham city residents free group cycle training and regular bike rides to help keep fit. Find out more about the Cycling for Health scheme and its programme of bike rides here.
