Cologne, Germany - The German Physical Education College DSHS in Cologne has reported riding a bicycle is an ideal way for people to improve their overall physical well being, with only 10 minutes a day to start the process towards a more healthy body.

In a report summarising about 7000 studies on the benefits of bicycling as a means to physical fitness, the DSHS said 10 minutes a day already helps muscle tone, circulation and body joints.

The Germans noted that improvement in the heart's condition can come from about 30 minutes of cycling each day, and at 50 minutes daily, the metabolism in burning off body fats is stimulated. Bicycling also strengthens the back muscles and the spinal column.

The report also called bicycling a good alternative to jogging because it puts less stress on the knee joints. - Sapa-dpa
