Biking is a great way to burn calories and shed weight. Riding at a moderate speed of 12 – 14 mph can burn about 23 calories in a half hour.
Schedule a daily ride of a half hour. For these short rides, try biking to and from work or school. Or ride your bike to visit a friend or to run errands.
Build up your stamina ’til you can ride a whole hour every day. You’ll burn about 500 calories. Do that for seven days and you’ll lose 3500 calories, which translates into a pound per week, which is a sensible weight-loss goal.
