The following are the major health benefits associated with cycling for women.
Energy Booster: Cycling aids in gaining energy and makes you fit and active for the upcoming task. Cycling triggers the brain to produce the neurotransmitter dopamine, which is linked to energy. It helps boost your metabolic rate long after you have finished your ride.
Increases Muscle Tone: Cycling strengthens leg muscles gradually, and is good for the mobility of hip and knee joints. Regular bike riding will help improve the muscle tone of your legs, thighs, rear and hips.
Burning Calories: Cycling is a good way to lose unwanted fat in the body. Steady cycling can burn approximately 300 calories per hour. If you cycle for 30 minutes everyday, you would burn 11 pounds of fat in a year.
Builds Strength and Stamina: Cycling is a good exercise to build up strength because every single part of the body is involved in cycling. It also helps in increasing stamina effectively.
