Lose weight by riding your bike. Loads of people who want to shift some heft think that heading out for a jog is the best way to start slimming down.

Cycling improves your sex life. Being more physically active improves your vascular health, which has the knock-on effect of boosting your sex drive, according to health experts in the US.

This refinement led to the 1890s invention of coaster brakes. Dérailleur gears and hand-operated Bowden cable-pull brakes were also developed during these years, but were only slowly adopted by casual riders.
