Biking to Lose Weight
Biking is an excellent cardio workout that can help boost heart and lung health, improve blood flow, build muscle strength, and lower stress levels. To optimize weight loss, it is important to know the strategies that work best and the options for biking in different environments
Pedaling at a leisurely pace won’t help you lose weight, but if you push yourself to work harder and increase the intensity of your ride, you’ll make more progress. At a 12-to-13.9 mile-per-hour pace, a 155-pound person can burn up to 298 calories in 30 minutes, while a 185-pound person can burn 355 calories
Tracking weight loss and cycling can help to measure progress, motivate, plan training, and manage recovery and rest periods. Tracking apps like Map My Ride, Endomondo, or Strava are free and easy to use, providing a community and social aspect.
Lastly, stay safe; wear a helmet, ride single file, ride on the right side of the road, use hand signals, forego electronics, keep an eye out for road hazards, and take care of your bike. These safety tips will help you stay safe while biking in the great outdoors.
