Cycling: Comprehensive endurance sport

If you value a healthy life, you should not neglect sports and exercise. Along with jogging and swimming, cycling is a particularly effective activity because it exercises various muscle groups while protecting tendons and joints.

Cycling in history

Wheels as a means of transportation operated by the driver himself already existed in the 17th century. However, it was to take a good 200 years before these bore any resemblance to today’s bicycles. The bicycle then had its heyday in the first half of the 20th century, as it was the first means of individual transportation at affordable prices. To this day, its cost-effectiveness is one of the most important pro-arguments for the bicycle, along with its environmental friendliness.

Cycling as an endurance sport

Cycling is one of the healthiest sports, along with swimming. The reason for this is that many muscle groups are used at the same time and, unlike jogging, the load on tendons and joints is not too great. On the contrary, the uniform circular motion has a very positive effect on the joints.

In addition to the legs, hand and arm, back and trunk muscles are trained. In addition, cycling improves fitness, supports metabolism and stimulates blood circulation. If you are out and about in all weathers with appropriate clothing, you will also strengthen your immune system.

Around the block or over the mountains

Cycling can be practiced in a variety of ways. It is suitable for a quick trip to the supermarket without the hassle of looking for a parking space or for bicycle tours lasting several days. Depending on the purpose and preference, there are various models to choose from, from the classic Holland bike to the sporty mountain bike for strenuous mountain tours.

Cycling makes healthy and happy

Due to its comprehensive effect, cycling is an ideal sport for a healthy life. In addition, exercise in nature provides more balance and satisfaction in everyday life.

For maximum effectiveness, it is recommended to train for 45-60 minutes three to four times per week. Beginners should get used to the load slowly and start with 20-30 minutes twice a week. The key is not to pedal too hard for the first five to ten minutes to warm up the muscles and stimulate circulation.
