Cycling is easy on your joints
You will experience less strain on your joints when you cycle rather than jog or run. As a result, you will be less likely to experience injuries that might interrupt your exercise routine. This is invaluable for weight loss, which requires consistent effort for the best results.
You can make cycling more challenging by adding weight
If you want more of a challenge from your cycling routine, you can add resistance in a few ways. Bikes with multiple gears can be shifted up to work the legs harder at low speeds. You can also add ankle weights, but avoid using overly heavy ones that discourage you from riding for as long as you would like.
