coronary disease and protects against stroke

cholesterol levels and blood pressure

increase self esteem and well-being - The Feel Good factor
- maintains fitness levels easily - you need to
reckon getting half an hour of moderate exercise 5 days a week
(cycling and walking are effective forms of aerobic exercise.
Infact cycling 4 miles daily reduces the risk of coronary heart
diseases by 50%. And if you would like to shed a few pounds, cycling
for half an hour burns around 150 calories).

- Try to avoid
the "I just don't have time" trap .. cycling's healthy and
easy. It's up to you. No artificial barriers and excuses.
