Cycling is an easy and low-impact activity which can significantly improve individual fitness. It is a great form of physical activity because of its versatility in intensity and type (e.g., competitive, commuting/transportation, recreational, indoor upright stationary, indoor recumbent stationary, etc.), each of which have associated and varied benefits to health and well-being.

The studies on active commuting combine walking and cycling have shown that active commuting reduces the risk of cardiovascular events, type-2 diabetes, hypertension and adiposity, and improves fitness.

Cycling can help to reduce the risk of a range of health problems, notably heart disease and cancer, the leading preventable causes of premature death.

Among adults, research has shown that increases in bike-related energy expenditure is significantly associated with weight reduction and overweightness/obesity prevention.

In older age, regular cycling can help reduce falls, improve bone density, and offset physical declines by improving functional capacity, making it easier to carry out activities of daily living and live independently.

Cycling can help lose belly fat, but it will take time. A recent study showed regular cycling may enhance overall fat loss and promote a healthy weight. To reduce overall belly girth, moderate-intensity aerobic exercises, such as cycling (either indoor or outdoor), are effective to lower belly fat.

Regular cycling also can help in term of:
*Decreased stress levels
*Improved posture and coordination
*Prevention or management of disease
*Reduced anxiety and depression.
