One hour of cycling

Have you ever thought about what would happen if you cycle for one hour everyday? Wonder no more as we list down the benefits of one hour of cycling.

1. Beat the stress in 10 minutes

In the first ten minutes of cycling, you are gripped with a sense of freedom. You will realize that in these few minutes, you have a grin on your face as you will get an overwhelming feeling by pedalling faster and faster.

If you find yourself feeling lethargic or listless, get yourself on your bike for at least 10 minutes. Exercise releases endorphins, which in turn help you feel better while lowering stress levels. 
Studies have also shown that cycling can ease feelings of stress, depression, or anxiety. Focusing on the road while you’re cycling helps develop concentration and awareness of the present moment.

2. Switch to better health in 20 minutes

As you keep pedalling, your body will be energized. Yet, at the same time, you will feel relaxed as your body rids itself of cortisol, a stress hormone which prevents deep and regenerative sleep.

One of the other benefits of cycling is that it helps prevent health concerns arising due to a sedentary lifestyle. It can help prevent cardiac issues such as stroke, heart attack, and high blood pressure. Cycling may also help prevent and manage type 2 diabetes.

Several scientific studies have shown that if you cycle for this long, the blood flow and oxygen level to your brain will be boosted. And the best thing is if you cycle for 40 minutes for five days a week, you will be surprised to know that your body will feel less sick as compared to couch potatoes.

Now that you are out in the open, soaking in the fresh air, serotonin and endorphins will be released into the bloodstream. Regular cycling, especially at a high intensity, helps lower body fat levels, which promotes healthy weight management. It also tends to increase your metabolism and build muscle, which allows you to burn more calories, even while at rest.


Love Cycling, Title – Love for Cycling

5. Fall in love with cycling in 60 minutes

By the end of 60 minutes, if you are exhausted, don’t be disheartened! Just stop near a roadside corner and drink some water. If you are feeling hungry, go and grab a bite. We assure you that if you cycle for 60 minutes for even 5 days a week, your body will fall in love with cycling.
