THE BEST FUN ON WHEELS!

Cycling is a great way to get and stay fit. It improves strength, stamina, aerobic fitness and general muscle function, though for strong, healthy bones, add in some weight-bearing exercise, such as walking. But the most important thing about cycling is quite how enjoyable it can be! And cycling is as easy as well...riding a bike.! Just check out my common-sense advice:
YOUR FITNESS:
Research suggests that regular cyclists have a fitness level ten years younger than their age,and a life expectancy two yeas longer than average. Half an hour's cycling burns around 150 calories. Pedal quickly with little resistance (in a low gear) for the best results. In a high gear and pushing hard, you will build big leg muscles, but in a low gear and pedalling quickly you tone small muscles and end up slim and fit.
YOUR KIT:
-Comfortable clothing. Special cycling gear is only really bebeficial if you are cycling for more than three hours or pushing hard enough to sweat a lot.
-Waterproof, breathable jacket essential if you are going to be out in all weathers.
-Gloves for winter.
YOUR ROUTES:
Try not to avoid hills. Hills make you work harder for short periods, and such high-intensity exercise gives your fitness a boost. You can cycle on all rights-of-way routes with the exception of footpaths. Check out local rides in books and maps at your library or local bookshop. Try the National Cycle Network, a series of surfaced off-road routes, usually compacted gravel on disused railway tracks and canal towpaths. Cycling groups are a good way to find new routes and new friends.
COMMON WORRIES:
Many new cyclists worry about dealing with punctures and cycling in traffic. You can ask your local bike shop to show you how to mend a puncture and it is handy to carry a repair kit with you.
