To overcome laziness, obesity, stress, impatience, boredom; to be positive, to feel good...
It is well known that practising a sport is good for both the body and the mind.
If you choose cycling as a sport there are also some added advantages.
For example, muscular exertion can be moderate or intense; the choice is yours, depending on how you feel at the time. Whatever you choose you can be assured of a beneficial effect.
This applies in particular if you ride a mountain bike: far from noise and traffic, making it stress free for both body and mind.
