Cycling and your body

Bicycling coaxes your body to continue burning calories at a higher rate after you’ve racked your bike, because your body is still working to repair and replenish your muscles. Cycling also builds lean muscle tissue and raises your basal metabolic rate (BMR), the speed at which you burn calories while you are just hanging around, not exercising. Studies show that just 30-45 minutes of exercise most days of a week can boost your BMR.
