Mountain Biking

Mountain Biking or 'out of the saddle' riding (e.g. climbing) is an excellent full body exercise. When mountain biking, you're constantly shifting your weight, sometimes carrying your bike, working your arms, chest, abs and improving your core stability. Regular cycling improves balance and co-ordination and studies have shown that those who cycle to work suffer less absenteeism than non-cycling employees as workers arrive fresh, relaxed and motivated

Cycling has possibly the broadest appeal of all forms of exercise, From toddler to pensioner, able bodied or disabled, practically everyone can enjoy the health benefits of cycling with the right equipment. Brisk cycling burns around 500 calories per hour, helping to control weight.

Cycling is one of the easiest ways to fit exercise into your daily routine because it doubles as transport. If you aim to cycle consistently twice during the week (either on road or spinning), and do a longer ride at the weekend you will soon achieve great cardiovascular fitness.
