On September 27th, commuter bike manufacturer Linus Bike reacts to an article published for Hive Health Media concerning the numerous health and weight loss benefits of cycling.
According to Hive Health Media, cycling promotes posture and balance because it works the core muscles. The Hive Health Mediaarticle reports, “Cycling is a great way to develop muscle and to burn fat, typically on a one hour cycling trip this will burn somewhere between 400 and 500 calories. By increasing the metabolic heart rate the body will start to appear leaner and more defined, the higher the metabolic heart rate the more calories will be burned, even when resting.”
Cycling tones the arms, calves, and hamstrings, while strengthening core stomach muscles reports Hive Health Media. In addition, cycling promotes brain health by providing momentum and increasing coordination.
China Reevers, representative for the environmentally friendly bike manufacturer Linus Bike stated, “In addition to toning and cardio, cycling reduces carbon emissions, decreases congestion, and is overall a tranquil experience. On top of promoting health and weight loss, cycling is also fantastic for the environment.”
The Hive Health Media article states that since the Olympics, bicycle popularity has increased in the UK. There have been reported increases of “5.1 per cent spent on bikes on the lead up to the Olympics and a 6.4 per cent increase after the Tour de France. The British Cycling Club has stated that their membership has increased 100 per cent since 2012; its highest since its inception in 1959,” the article reports.
