88 Bikers' Cafe @ 88 MarketPlace, Kepayan

How to stay in shape? As food bloggers, we tend to eat more than our daily requirements. For us to maintain a fit and healthy body, we usually did a few indoor cycling and yoga class a week. However, I think it's time for me to take it outdoor for change of scenery and breathe in fresh air. Although indoor cycling is more convenience but the varied intensity of outdoor riding: freewheeling, uphill inclines, etc. can make it feel much more satisfying and spontaneous than fixed cycling in a closed environment. Outdoor cycling has the potential for high energy expenditure, particularly when you're covering high mileage or taking in hilly terrain. The average Tour de France rider burns 124,000 calories during the race.

Some of the benefits of cycling:
Cycling is one of the best ways for people to achieve good health and fitness. People who cycle regularly live longer and lead healthier lives. Cyclists typically have a level of fitness equivalent to being 10 years younger.

Humans have several hundred muscles, which have to be used regularly in order to maintain fitness and health. A week of inactivity reduces the strength of the muscular system by up to 50% and can harm them long-term. This is particularly true for older people as aging causes muscles to shrink. During cycling, most of the body's muscles are activated. The leg muscles are responsible for the pedalling movement; the abdomen and back muscles stabilise the body on the cycle and cushion external influences; and the shoulder-arm muscular system supports the body at the handlebars. All this trains and tightens up the muscular system, making it stronger and able to function efficiently.

Posture when cycling is optimum, and the cyclic movement of the legs stimulates muscles in the lower back, where slipped discs are most likely to occur. In this way the spine is strengthened and secured against external stresses. In particular cycling can stimulate the small muscles of the vertebrae which are difficult to affect through other exercise. This can help reduce the likelihood of back pains and other problems.

Cycling is especially good at protecting and feeding cartilages as the support given by the bicycle means that the forces that act as a result of body weight are significantly reduced. The circular movement of cycling assists the transport of energy and other metabolic produces to the cartilages, reducing the likelihood of arthrosis.

Cycling can train the organism to use up fat reserves and also changes the cholesterol balance, favouring the protective kind over that which is threatening to health. As body weight reduces and cholesterol is optimised, a protective mechanism is enabled by continuing to cycle. Regular exercise during youth is a prevention factor against excessive body weight in adults.

If you can't make it outdoor, Try indoor cycling class....
It's more convenience to do indoor cycling, once you get to the gym, you can work at your own personal level, while still being part of a group in a dry, temperature controlled and safe environment. The instructor, music and group motivation can help to off set the hard feeling of no change of scenery. Indoor cyclist worked at 75-96 % of their maximum heart rate, far exceeding the minimum requirement. Indoor cycling uses the same muscles as road biking. However, the weight of the flywheel (14-18kg) increases the number of pedal strokes per minute, forcing the hamstrings to work harder. The fixed wheel of a spinning bike means you can't "freewheel", so your muscles work the whole time. This makes it a pretty high-intensity activity, burning a lot of calories (500 - 1000 calorie for an hour).
