May is national bike-to-work month! So pull out that bike that has been sitting in the garage all winter and get to work. Cycling is a low-impact, aerobic exercise that provides many health benefits. Check out a few of these benefits below:
Cycling is non-polluting and can help us breathe easier.
Exposure to Sunlight
Vitamin D generated from 15 minutes of sunshine a day can help prevent multiple cancers.
Improved Cardiovascular Fitness
Cycling strengthens the heart, which improves blood circulation.
Increased Joint Movement
Cycling reduces the risk of arthritis, is gentler on joints than running and can actually strengthen them.
Reduced Back Pain
It strengthens the large and small muscles of the back.
Weight Loss and Fitness
Cycling burns calories and builds muscle.
