Cycling drastically lowers your risk of having a heart attack

Cycling in middle age dramatically reduces the risk of suffering a heart attack in later life, a major study reveals.

As little as 30 minutes a week has a marked effect on the chance of developing coronary heart disease over the next 20 years.

People who consistently spent 90 minutes on their bike a week were 24% less likely to develop angina or have a heart attack, where else half an hour a week has 16% reduced risk.

Therefore, the more you cycle, it is likely that you will NOT have a high chance of a heart attack.
