5. Cycling provides the 'brain effect'
When you cycle, you not only move your body, but also your brain. Cycling has a positive effect on the blood flow to your brains, allowing more oxygen to enter your brain. This way more proteins are produced to create new brain cells. In addition, cycling ensures that the different parts of our brain can communicate better with each other, which increases our cognitive capacity. This means that our insightful skills - which have to do with thinking, the mind, the intellect and the human cognitive capacity - improve.
6. Cycling supports muscle formation
During cycling you do not just use your legs and feet to turn the pedals around. You also use many additional muscles, including to steer, stay in balance, to keep yourself in position and for extra power. With a regular bike ride you work hard on your muscle formation. If you cycle half an hour to an hour a day, you will get in good shape and you get stronger muscles.
