Lance Armstrong, once a hero for overcoming testicular cancer and going on to win the Tour de France, has fallen from grace after confessing to using performance-enhancing drugs.

Armstrong appeared on the Oparah Winfrey show and said that his achievements would not have been feasible without cheating.

It has been hinted that, due to its dirty reputation, cycling may now be ditched from the Olympics (According to the Daily Mail) but Gymkit UK hope that cycling will continue to be a popular sport due to its health benefits. Cycling is such a good form of exercise because it is low impact so it doesn't impact joints as much as other forms of aerobic exercise but does aid weight loss, reduces stress and improves fitness. Furthermore, it’s a form of exercise that is accessible to a variety of people from youngsters to pensioners and people with disabilities should they have the right apparatus available to them. Cycling is also a method of transport so it doesn't necessarily mean a trip to the gym in order to participate regularly. Nicole Saunders, Brand Manager at Gymkit UK said “I’m really fortunate that I am able to cycle to work. It means that if I can’t make it to the gym I know I’m doing physical activity on 5 out of 7 days each week.”
