5 Ways Cycling Changes Your Body

5 ways cycling changes your body

Although it might not feel like it after a particularly intense episode of saddle sores, your body LOVES cycling, and it shows. 

Here are the 5 ways cycling changes your body for the better, have a look to see if you've noticed any of the signs. 

Firmer Core
All regular cyclists enjoy the benefit of burning fat and strengthening muscles on their rides, the effect of which is improved muscle definition. It seems logical that an activity that keeps your legs in constant motion would tone them up, sooner rather than later, but actually you're equally as likely to see better definition through your core, which works to keep you balanced, and your arms as they brace against the handlebars. These effects tend to be even more pronounced in off-road cyclocross or MTB riders where the terrain requires a higher level of maneuverability, and in road riders that climb hills regularly.
