Heal your heart. Studies from Purdue University in the US have shown that regular cycling can cut your risk of heart disease by 50 percent. And according to the British Heart Foundation, around 10,000 fatal heart attacks could be avoided each year if people kept themselves ﬁtter. Cycling just 20 miles a week reduces your risk of heart disease to less than half that of those who take no exercise, it says.
It`ll make you happy. Even if you`re miserable when you saddle up, cranking through the miles will lift your spirits. “Any mild-to-moderate exercise releases natural feel-good endorphins that help counter stress and make you happy,” explains Andrew McCulloch, chief executive of the Mental Health Foundation. That`s probably why four times more GPs prescribe exercise therapy as their most common treatment for depression compared to three years ago. “Just three 30-minute sessions a week can be enough to give people the lift they need,” says McCulloch. Why cycling makes you happy.
Spend quality time with your partner. It doesn`t matter if your paces aren`t perfectly matched, just slow down and enjoy each other`s company. Many couples make one or two riding ‘dates` every week. And it makes sense: exercise helps release feel-good hormones, so after a ride you`ll have a warm feeling towards each other even if he leaves the toilet seat up and her hair is blocking the plughole again.
