For those people who wish to lose weight fast, there really is nothing better than getting in the saddle and making those pedals whir. To make things more sociable there are also plenty of excellent cycle clubs to join, so you can have a chin wag while you bomb around rural roads.

Just make sure you get some lessons first so as to fine tune your technique and then before you know it you’ll be gliding through the water like a veritable fish, all the while shedding those unwanted bingo wings or belly bulges.
