The benefits of riding a bike

This year, the Tour de France is coming to Denmark. We're celebrating the arrival of le Tour by highlighting the sport of cycling together with our professional triathlete and sports therapist, Sebastian Engwald.

A sport for the fragile

Cycling offers health benefits such as stronger muscles, stronger core and better fitness – much like running. Furthermore, the sport doesn’t require a lot pressure to propel yourself forward, so it’s a great way to improve your overall stamina – which is pretty useful for your running sessions.

“I do both cycling and running, and both hold different qualities. Cycling takes off weight on your legs, joints and knees, so in resting times, cycling is a great way of staying fit.”

“You really get a bang for your buck with both cycling and running.”
