Cycling For Fitness

Cycling in general is great for fitness and very much enjoyable too. The rush of wind in your face as you carve through the air is a feeling many enjoy from childhood. The bicycle is an incredibly efficient machine, utilising relatively small amounts of your energy and converting it into speed, for this reason you can cover vast distances and take in much scenery within the space of a couple of hours. It is no wonder that the sport has proved itself so popular.
