Mart Davids said on Oct. 4, 2013 at 12:55 a.m. Interesting article on running vs biking. Here's my own take:
* Burns fewer calories per hour than running (a 150-pound person cycling at 16 to 19 miles per hour burns about 850 calories).
* A gentler workout than running, at least for your joints and the weight-bearing parts of your body.
* Vigorous cycling may lower levels of ghrelin, the hormone that stimulates your appetite (meaning you won't be as hungry).
* Generally burns more calories per minute than cycling (a 150-pound person running a 7-minute mile—which is really, really fast—burns about 1,000 calories per hour).
* Has been shown to be the source of more injuries than cycling.
* Vigorous running may also quell your appetite.
Still, what you enjoy the most is often the overlooked factor!
