101 reasons to love cycling in London #30; it makes you poo better!

We're not afraid to 'go there' on i b i k e l o n d o n; there's no subject too squeamish, no story too scatological to escape our attention.  Choosing an appropriate picture for this particular blog post might be a challenge, but we're not afraid to try...

You heard it here first; cycling makes your poo nicer.  Or rather, riding a bike can help to boost your bowels.  “Physical activity helps decrease the time it takes food to move through the large intestine, limiting the amount of water absorbed back into your body and leaving you with softer stools, which are easier to pass,” explains Harley Street gastroenterologist Dr Ana Raimundo.

In addition, aerobic exercise accelerates your breathing and heart rate, which helps to stimulate the contraction of intestinal muscles. “As well as preventing you from feeling bloated, this helps protect you against bowel cancer,” Dr Raimundo says.

Chris Hoy. Built on Bran Flakes and obviously in the rudest of colostomic health.

So in addition to nicer poo, and potentially avoiding the Big C, trust me, your co-workers will thank you for it; they have to share that company bathroom with you too, you know.

No one likes to have an uncomfortable time on the toilet, and with cycling being the fastest way to get around town it seems that bicycles have more than one way of keeping you regular.  It's just number 30 of a 101 reasons to love cycling in London!

I must say - from all the reasons to love the bicycle this one is probably the most enticing.

@ndru If it's good enough for the magnificent Sir Hoy, it's good enough for me!

I hope it isn't too effective, especially while riding, or the storm drains of London may suffer the consequences...

I really like the advert though...

That's funny; I recently heard London's roads being described as like 'Pre-Victorian open sewers' due to their safety record, so this analogy is all the more appropriate!

I agree, it's a great advert. However, I am dubious as to the power of bran flakes. I've been eating them for months now and still don't have thighs wider than my waist...
