Aindrita Ray is back and how! At a recent award function, she was the cynosure of all eyes in a white outfit. The actress looked fit and fab and we’re guessing it’s because of her regular cycling habits. Here are a few unusual benefits of this handy and no-frills workout.
Research has shown that cycling reduces the chances of bowel cancer and the risk of breast cancer is reduced, too.
Moreover it is recommended for people suffering from Type 2 diabetes. Lack of physical activity is a major reason why people develop this type of diabetes. If you’re a potential diabetic or are already suffering from it, then cycling for around 30 minutes per day can reduce that risk upto 40% and improve your health condition.
Mental health conditions such as depression, stress and anxiety can be reduced by regular bike riding. This is only because riding brings joy. Speaking of which, doesn’t Aindrita look chirpy and happy to be cycling in this picture?

Cycling is an overall exercise to build muscle because one tends to use all parts of the body during this workout. Your joints are put to use as the constant pedalling helps in exercising them. One might also use the hamstrings in the back of the thighs and the flexor muscles in the front of the hip which helps build thigh muscle. Additionally, cycling also helps increase bone density!
Last but not the least, if you’re looking to lose some weight, then cycling is the most enjoyable form of exercise. It burns around 400-1000 calories depending on the intensity at which you do it.
