I can not tell you about orange peels. But, if it works for you, tell us about it.
I read an article in the Consumer's Report "On Health". It said that aerobic type exercise helped elevate the high density, "good" cholesterol, while muscle building exercise helped lower the low density or bad cholesterol. Cycling in the mountains gives me both types of exercise and my cholesterol readings came within specs when I restarted to bike (actually recumbent trike).
Perhaps you already ride enough to make this information meaningless.
