Develop muscle and burn fat! While the weather is still nice it’s time to hop on your bike and take a nice hour ride around your neighborhood. The art of balancing on your bike as you ride around town will help develop a strong core that will even help your posture. Not only does cycling develop muscle, but also can be a great way to lose weight as it raises your resting metabolism. A one hour bike ride can burn up to 500 calories! So instead of trying to lose weight through crash diets and reforming yourself through new years resolutions, simply start eating better and enjoy daily activites such as bike riding.
