Pedal your way to good health - time to get on your bike. A study at the Academy for Sports Sciences in Cologne has shown that cycling is one of the best all-round forms of exercise, benefiting the joints, cardiovascular system and immune system and helping fight back pain. Better still, it's also a good, cheap form of transport. If a child cycles just one mile to school and back each day, they would burn off 12 pounds of fat a year and be healthier as well.

The next time you're going 'just down the road' to the bank, the post office, the newspaper shop, etc, etc, why not just get the bike out? Cheaper, easier to park and better for your health!


Two of the big highlights in the cycling calendar:

Cycling to work almost halves the risk of developing cancer and heart disease, scientists have discovered, and, although walking to work is good for you, it does not provide the same health benefits as using a bike.

A study conducted at the University of Glasgow found those who cycle are 41 per cent less Cycling safety and cycling is good for your healthlikely to suffer premature death from any cause.

The test, carried out on 264,337 people, revealed cycling is linked to a 45 per cent lower risk of cancer and 46 per cent less chance of heart disease, compared with driving or taking public transport.

Dr Jason Gill, from the institute of cardiovascular and medical sciences at Glasgow, said the Government needs to look at ways to make it easier for people to commute by bike, such as creating "cycle lanes, city bike hire, subsidised cycle purchase schemes and increasing provision for cycles on public transport".

These would create "major opportunities for public health improvement," he added.

And Dr Mike Knapton, associate medical director at the British Heart Foundation, added: "It is paramount to make physical activity easier and more accessible. Local authorities and workplaces should support this by making using active transport as a means to get to work an easy option."
