If you’re a die hard runner, you might be skeptical of taking up spinning. But here are some things that might make you change your mind: Biking is a sure fire way to burn major calories (around 600 calories an hour), trim stubborn fat, and sculpt your entire lower body. Both indoor spinning and outdoor cycling can tone front and outer thigh muscles, provide less impact and stress on joints than jogging or treadmill, improve coordination, reduce risk of diabetes and high blood pressure.
Plus, outdoor cycling reduces carbon footprint and saves on parking fees and gas–all while giving you a serious booty. What can be better?
So you’ve decided to give cycling a try, whether it be inside or outside of the gym, you’ll more than likely need some “cycling-friendly” gear and great tips to get you going in full speed. Take a peek at some of our favorite fashion finds, helpful gadgets and assortment of cycling essentials.
