It’s easy to become confused at the conflicting, and occasionally chaotic, advice surrounding the Coronovirus virus, but on one thing everyone agrees: a fit and healthy body is far better prepared to deal with illness of any kind. Couple that with quieter-than-usual roads and the need to avoid close contact with others and cycling starts to look even more attractive a mode of transport.

Numerous health benefits of cycling
Cycling isn’t just a cheap and convenient way to boost the body’s immune system. Unlike stuffy indoor gyms, cycling in the fresh air is a perfect way to soak up any available sunshine for a boost of vitamin D.
The numerous benefits of exercise go beyond the physical – cycling is a powerful mood enhancer. In these uncertain times, a morale boost is just what the doctor ordered.
