We’ve known for years that regular exercise from cycling increases your lifespan by up to 2 years, but much more important is your HEALTHspan – being fit enough to really enjoy life. And cycling can give you an extra 10 years of HEALTHspan, i.e. making you feel as healthy as someone 10 years younger.
Yes, there really is scientific evidence to support it, which you can see below, and in more detail at cyclehelmets.org/1015.html . And the most surprising thing (to me at least), was that all those annoying road jolts turn out to exercise our muscles, tendons and ligaments all over our body, improving our core strength. Especially supporting the spine, for those of us that suffer back pain. (But we still need smooth cycle paths!).
