Cycle to Work Day 2018 – Cycling Health Benefits

Cycle to Work Day 2018 – https://www.cycletoworkday.org/

Wednesday 15th August 2018 is Cycle to Work Day 2018, and it aims to encourage everyone to travel to work on their pedal bike.

It is the UK’s biggest cycle commuting event. Since the event began in 2012, over 2 million miles have been ridden.

The health benefits  from regular cycling include:

  • improved joint mobility
  • improved posture and coordination
  • increased cardiovascular fitness
  • decreased body fat levels.

Cycling can help to prevent depression, obesity and arthritis.

Riding a bike, along with a healthy eating plan, is a great way to lose weight.

According to  research, a half-hour bike ride everyday can burn nearly 5 kilograms of fat over a year.

Everyone who pledges their miles has the chances to win some incredible prizes.

Do You Want To Live As Long As The Queen?

Once you reach the age of 90, you stop ageing, according to Michael Rose, a professor of evolutionary biology.

Professor Rose suggests that you should start a ‘Stone Age’ diet from the age of 30.

The diet should include fruits, nuts, seafood and vegetables and grains and dairy products should be avoided.

For those in doubt, the University of California professor practises what he preaches. He says: ‘I have been following such a diet – avoiding grass-derived foods, such as grains, rice, corn and sugar cane, and anything made from milk – for two years and the results have been good.’

Statistics have shown that ageing seems to come to a halt at 93 and does not start again until we get a telegram from the Queen.

Queen Elizabeth II is currently celebrating her 90th birthday.
