From cardiovascular health to improving blood circulation, cycling is known for its many health benefits. Apart from being a great cardio workout, it also helps lower blood pressure and protects you against hypertension, stroke, etc.
Cycling is also an effective way for diabetics to keep blood sugar under control, and keep weight in check. Better diabetes management and sugar control minimise the risk of health complications associated with the lifestyle disorder.
