    bicycle for weight loss, non statinary

    So my wife and i got road bikes and we are just starting to ride them, is cycling a good way to loose fat but retain muscle. We ride mostly on flat surfaces but there are a few hills here and there, i would rate intensity 7 out of 10...just wondering if this helps other people alone as cardio to loose weight. We still hit the gym daily.

    Thanks in advance.

    of course it is buddy, how long are your rides?...I ask because its hard to gauge how many calories your actually burning...

    Sure it is three days a week you are burning more calories then you were before you had bikes. Weight loss = burning more calories than you take in plus biking is alot of fun.

    I love my hybrid, I'm cutting for a comp, I ride to and from work 5.5 miles takes 23 mins each way which burns 350 cals according to map my fitness app, my none work route is about 10 mile - 45 mins 750 cals. Yeah it burns fat as part of a regime, morning fasted is good :-)
