So I was just curious what health benefits others have seen from cycling. I bought a bike last February, and a few weeks ago I committed to commuting full time. One of the biggest reasons was my need to lose weight and improve my overall health. My commute is only 3 miles one way, so I have begun to take the long way home a couple of times a week. (8 miles one way over some hills).
What health benefits have you seen from your commute (or cycling in general)? For those who started recently, how long before you started to notice a change in your body?
Thanks in advance.
