The World Health Organization estimates that 28-35% of people aged 65 or over will suffer a fall each year. Falls can have debilitating effects. Better balance and core stability is a form of intervention that has the ability to significantly reduce the risk of falling. Cycling is an exercise that increases balance due to the isolation of the glute muscles and stabilisation of the core. All of us could attest to being happy with some more balance - but if you’re in your sixties and beyond, balance can be really important for your range of movement. An exercise that improves balance equates to better coordination and posture, an increase in communication between the brain and muscles and also acts in stabilising the hips. These benefits almost speak for themselves, but really at the crux of it, is that by getting into cycling - you are making a decision that will have long term positive mobility benefits.
