Regular Cycling will improve the balance and coordination of the cycler. It also strengthens the bones and lessens the chances of it breaking during a accident. Especially with this benefit and the fact that cycling is a less stressful (on joints) yet still effective form of exercise, it’s an ideal activity for an osteoarthritis patient to take part in to improve the strength of their bones.
Cycling is an incredibly sociable sport. Joining a cycling club or group is an excellent way to grow your social circle, and if you're new to riding - you'll probably find all the maintenance and training advice you may have been looking for there, too.
