Whether you’ve just added one of the best exercise bikes to your home or are starting a new exercise routine, get ready to reap the rewards. Exercise bikes are popular home gym equipment – they don’t need to be constantly replaced, and even if you opt for models like Peloton Bike or Peloton Bike Plus, the monthly subscription is cheaper than most gyms. Also, you can cycle while watching television. But what are the benefits of regular cycling and are exercise bikes good for weight loss?

For those looking to lose weight, you should aim for 30 minutes of moderate-intensity cardiovascular activity at least five days a week, or at least 25 minutes of vigorous aerobic activity three days a week. If you’re looking to build muscle, you should stick to about three days of HIIT per week, but focus on shorter, higher-intensity sessions.
