11 reasons why mountain biking is the best form of exercise

Posted on

Like you need any more reasons to ride.

There’s nothing that’s better than mountain biking for giving your whole body – and mind – a complete workout.

Why is mountain biking the best? Let us count the ways…

1. Heart

Mountain biking is an excellent form of cardio work-out. Although it may not feel like it as you’re dying a death on the way up some godforsaken climb, biking gives your blood an increase in oxygen. Biking improves your blood vessels by dilating them and keeping them clear.

2. Blood pressure

Biking wards off hypertension (another term for high blood pressure).

3. Lungs

Your lungs’ performance can improve by a whopping 25% compared to your average couch potato.

4. Muscles

There are few activities that give your body as thorough going-over as mountain biking. Specifically your muscles. Pretty much all of them.
