Come in from the cold!

 

Cycling-Chic-12Jump in the saddle

Too cold to run outside? Come in out of the cold and jump into the saddle this winter.

For the average runner indoor cycling doesn't just make you stronger, it makes you faster too. It benefits the development of your leg muscles which helps to stabilise the knee joints and encourage faster recovery of the legs after running, while the continuous cardiovascular workout helps to improve your overall fitness level helping you to get faster on your runs.

It's actually the relationship between cadence and the velocity of hip rotation in degrees per second that really provides the link up between running and cycling.

An individual pedalling at a cadence of 90 rpm (revolutions per minute) is generally rotating their hips at a velocity of around 220 degrees per second. This is equivalent to a 6.45 per mile running pace, while a cadence of 70 rpm would be equivalent to around an 8 minute mile.

This translates to running as it teaches our bodies how to react and move faster, so literally getting your legs moving fast on a bike will help you to move them faster on the ground.
