Boost your bellows. No prizes for guessing that the lungs work considerably harder than usual when you ride. An adult cycling generally uses 10 times the oxygen they`d need to sit in front of the TV for the same period. Even better, regular cycling will help strengthen your cardiovascular system over time, enabling your heart and lungs to work more efﬁciently and getting more oxygen where it`s needed, quicker. This means you can do more exercise for less effort. How good does that sound?
great benefits of cycling. You`ll get there faster. Commute by bike in the UK`s major cities and you`ll get there in half the time of cars, research by Citroen shows. In fact, if you drive for an hour in Cardiff`s rush hour, you`ll spend over 30 minutes going absolutely nowhere and average just 7mph, compared to averaging around 12-15mph while cycling. And even in bike-friendly or less congested cities outside of the UK, you`ll still generally get around the city centres faster on a bike.
You`ll sleep more deeply. An early morning ride might tire you out in the short term, but it`ll help you catch some quality shut-eye when you get back to your pillow. Stanford University School of Medicine researchers asked sedentary insomnia sufferers to cycle for 20-30 minutes every other day. The result? The time required for the insomniacs to fall asleep was reduced by half, and sleep time increased by almost an hour. “Exercising outside exposes you to daylight,” explains Professor Jim Horne from Loughborough University`s Sleep Research Centre. “This helps get your circadian rhythm back in sync, and also rids your body of cortisol, the stress hormone that can prevent deep, regenerative sleep.”
