Cycling and Health: Cycling and Type 2 Diabetes – is there any evidence?


After studying the grounds on cycling and health thoughtfully, there was a nagging doubt behind everyone’s mind on whether cycling will have a positive effect on Type 2 Diabetes. In order to answer that question, let us review a study conducted in England and some facts to draw a conclusion. 

We have to acknowledge that cycling has huge benefits to improve general people’s health by assisting them to obtain the required level of physical activity as part of their daily exercise regime. 

It is known fact that UAE health sector is a consistent stakeholder in reaching millions of patients and populations daily and their interactions plays an important role in disseminating information and knowledge in regard of health services. 

The landscape of health benefits of cycling are still way far from reaching its value. The concerned parties must actively engage with research, policies and plans for the whole population’s betterment through cycling. The authorities also have to support with the infrastructure for this benefitting healthy exercise. 

Type 2 Diabetes 

Type 2 diabetes is a chronic disease due to regulation of our body glucose or known as blood sugar. Glucose is the basic components broken down in the body that will feed our body’s cells and it need a key to enter our cells. The key is known as insulin but for type 2 diabetes patients, the key is broken because their body does not respond well to insulin and slowly at one point of time in the later stage their body will fail to make enough insulin. 

Cycling and type 2 diabetes 

Fortunately, there are researches linking cycling and diabetes by assisting patients managing their diabetes and exercise more effectively as part of their treatment and prevention measures. Continuous and routine exercise and activity especially cycling are very essential in helping people with type 2 diabetes to control their blood sugar level and improve their overall health. 

In one study involving 2682 men who undertakes cycling as one of their daily activity, the researcher confirmed that light effort in cycling conformed to the intensity threshold required. Furthermore, there is evidence that cycling exercises have all been shown to enhance mobility because cycling is categorized as a higher intensity physical activity that contribute positively to a person’s health. 

There is a beneficial effect of cycling with moderate intensity rendering those sub-populations who are at the point of an elevated risk of type 2 diabetes resulting from their obesity, increasing blood pressure, and a genetic history of the disease. They have to be patient and have play down their feelings to see results right away in the mirror or weighing scales. 

Apart from that, there is also strong evidence leading from training studies conducted in which it is concluded that individuals who train one leg and leave the other to rest has proven that the glucose intake is remarkably more than doubled in the trained leg compared to the resting leg. It is accepted that the health benefits of cycling outweigh the risks, when cycling is compared to being sedentary. 


The purpose of this blog is to create awareness for those individuals out there with health risks to adopt cycling for their well being purpose. We hope we are able to draw interest of those in the onset of type 2 diabetes to use the useful facts to kick start their exercise regime instead of living a sedentary life. Furthermore the evidence presented is expected to create interest for cycling on the ground of their prevalent benefits for health. It is our desire that this article will be read by anyone and everyone and persuade people to take proactive action in investing in cycle as an investment of UAE’s future health. Find the best bicycles for sale and have your health in mind and walk of life to cycle, safely and frequently.
