CycleNation to offer biking options to improve heart health
By AMERICAN HEART ASSOCIATION NEWS
Newly created CycleNation is offering different events across the nation to encourage people to get off their sofas and on to their bicycles.
CycleNation, sponsored by Amgen Cardiovascular and CycleBar, encourages people to use road bikes, stationary bikes and community indoor cycling classes to get brain and heart healthy while raising funds to support research to reduce stroke and heart disease.
Cycling can promote both heart and brain health by strengthening the heart muscles, helping lower the resting pulse, and reducing cholesterol. Cycling can also help maintain brain function and mental sharpness.
Upcoming events will include a cycling competition, a series of classes in Atlanta, Cincinnati, Dallas and Denver, and a ride challenge.
