Your Knees Will Thank You

A new study finds that people who bike regularly are significantly less likely to have osteoarthritis or experience knee pain by age 65 compared to people who don’t bike. The study adds to the body of evidence supporting the health benefits of cycling, including strengthening the immune system and helping you live longer.

  • 🚲 Cycling is low impact and can help build leg muscles around the knee, helping to protect the joint.
  • 🚲 The rhythmic motion of pedaling can also help lubricate the knee joint by moving synovial fluid — the viscous, egg-white-like liquid in joints that helps reduce friction and absorb shock.
