Trying to stay in shape this spring? Bicycling burns calories faster than most other forms of exercise. That’s right; no need to pound the pavement (and your knees) running; no need to swallow chlorinated pool water swimming; no need even to watch Richard Simmons “sweating to the oldies.”
Exercise is an essential part of any weight-loss regime. Losing weight and building muscle all revolves around burning calories — and the more exercise you do the more calories you’ll burn. It’s that simple. Cycling is our bread and butter (but stay away from those fatty foods!) here at Ecycling Store, and today we’re here to tell you how you can get in shape and burn that fat by cycling more. But in addition we’re not going to be shy about telling you that cycling is not only more enjoyable, but it also is more efficient than lots of other forms of exercise.
Bicycling burns calories faster than most other common exercises. Comparing running vs. cycling in various calorie-burning calculators, you can see that bicycling burns more calories over a shorter time with the same distance and body weight of the rider than running. A 180-lb runner who makes 10 miles in a little over an hour and a half only burns 1300 calories, while a 180-lb bicyclist making the same trip at a pace of 15mph or so will burn over 1600 calories!
It’s not all about mindless exercise, by the way. Bicycling not only helps burn calories, but covers much more ground doing so! See the sites, take the scenic route and experience nature while moving at a brisk 10-16 mph pace- burning fat and going far at the same time. Strenuous exercise feels a lot easier when you’ve covered miles and miles while doing it.
Whether on a pleasurable ride through the country or an off-road trail to beat your best time, bicycling burns calories fast!
