What can be better for your mind and body than long warm summer days, exceptional panoramic views, and most importantly the health benefits that nature and biking has to offer. So why not experience it all by cycling through beautiful country side of Slovenia? 🙂
Here are 7 benefits of how cycling (e-bike) is healthy for your mind and body.
1. BURNING FAT
As your whole body must to work to keep you balanced on a bicycle and a different terrain, you consequently burn more calories. For example, a woman who weighs 60kg would burn around 480 calories whilst cycling from 20 to 25km/h in 60 minutes, and if she is cycling a little bit faster, from 25 to 30km/h she can burn up to 600 calories. So ladies you shouldn’t even think twice when deciding to go for a bike ride.
2. JUST A “BY THE WAY” RECREATION
The best thing about cycling is that you get to exercise without even being aware of it. Especially when you are with a group of friends and family, or like-minded people who enjoy spending time in nature. As the phrase goes, “time flies when you are having fun”.
3. MUSCLE TONING
Cyclists are known for having nicely toned legs, which is not uncommon, as most large muscle groups work during cycling, such as lower leg muscles, anterior and posterior thigh muscles and the glutes. In addition, the muscles for balance are also active, such as the abdominal muscles, muscles in the lower back and in the arms. You have got yourself a whole-body workout right there!
