The first ever cycle was introduced in the streets in the early 19th century. Ever since then, cycles have been considered as speedy and convenient means of transport. They may have been sidelined by the motorcars and motorcycles. However, they are still popular as a means of transport in rural areas. In some European cities, people use bicycles and there are narrow pavements built for such cyclers.

However, cycling is not just a good sport. It is also healthy. Let’s see how:

1. Provides Exercise: If you cycle regularly for an hour or half-an-hour, you do not need to exercise again in the day. When you cycle regularly, your legs and limbs get enough exercise. Moreover, such vigorous exercise will help in active blood circulation and respiration processes.

2. Increasing Muscle Strength: If you want to make your thigh and calf muscles fit and toned, cycling is a great option. This is because it will help to work out your leg muscles without any adverse side effects like strain on the muscles.

3. Improves Stamina: Cycling, along with swimming, is thought as one of the best ways to improve your stamina and perseverance. You can cycle up to great distances without really feeling tired or exhausted.

4. Makes Heart Healthy: When you cycle smoothly, your heart is being exercised as well. The heart keeps on pumping blood and this keeps the whole organ healthy and fit.

5. Helps To Burn Calories: When you cycle, you will be losing many calories and fats without feeling fatigued and tired.

6. Stress Management: Cycling makes you feel great and free from stress.
