The bicycle, as a means of transport

A sedentary lifestyle is one of the main causes of non-communicable diseases and the bicycle can collaborate in its prevention if we use it, approximately 20 minutes a day.

In addition, the bicycle is a sustainable and healthy means of transport because it does not harm the environment, it allows us to move 3 times faster than walking and represents a physical activity with great health benefits.

If we consider that most of the urban trips do not exceed 5 km and we do them by bicycle, we would cover the basic needs of physical activity in an economic way, without polluting the environment and improving the quality of life.

Riding half an hour on a bicycle each day for people who do little exercise would achieve: 50% lower risk of heart and vascular disease, diabetes and obesity and 30% lower risk of high blood pressure.
