    Swimming will also give you similar benefits.

    Re: Benefits of cycling

    Cycling versus swimming

    Health: Both are low-impact exercises – water supports you while swimming; and during a bike ride your weight is taken by the seat and handlebars – which is good news for your joints. Weight-bearing exercises are best for preventing osteoporosis, however, so bad news for your bones.


    Where you cycle plays a large part in how healthy it is for you too: if you cycle in busy traffic you're putting both your lungs and heart at risk, according to research undertaken by the British Heart Foundation. They found that study participants suffered from blood vessel damage up to six hours after exposure to high pollution levels while cycling. You won't be exposed to air-borne pollutants while swimming, although you are more likely to encounter non-life-threatening nasties such as veruccas and athlete's foot, not to mention the occasional plaster.


    Score: Cycling: 1 Swimming: 2
    Calorie burn: Neither swimming nor cycling will burn many calories unless you do it at speed, getting out of breath in the process. If, for example, your cycling style is more Mary Poppins (slow and steady at 5mph) than Lance Armstrong (feet spinning the pedals at 13mph), you'll burn nearly 200* fewer calories for every 30 minutes you ride. Water-lovers have it just as tough: cruising through the water like a swan will burn about 100 fewer calories than vigorous swimming per 30 minutes. Added to that, research published in the International Journal of Sport Nutrition and Exercise Metabolism found that swimming in cool water increases appetite making you more likely to pig-out after your pool session.


    Score: Cycling: 1 Swimming: 0
    Enjoyment: Unlike cycling where the scenery changes as you move, swimming in a pool can make you feel a bit like a bored goldfish. Cycling also allows for companionship; attempting a conversation while swimming is likely to result in a swallowing of words, not to mention a large mouthful of water. That said, being immersed in water is incredibly calming, so if you're stressed and need time alone it could be the perfect remedy.


    Score: Cycling: 1 Swimming: 1
    Overall winner: it's a draw!
