Cycling or Jogging?

I'm torn between this two but I found that jogging/running causes me too sweat more compared to cycling. Which one do you prefer? In terms of burning calories, fats and better for your body, less strain.

Re: Cycling or Jogging?

I enjoy Cycling.

Just not the sweaty bum crack from it though!

I can cycle for 3-4 hours, running, give me 15 minutes and I get sharp pains in my achillies.

Re: Cycling or Jogging?

A little bit of both?
Or even try Long Distance Walking and Swimming?
Change it up every now and then to make it less boring plus it gives yourself more options so you will stick to it.

Re: Cycling or Jogging?

To be honest, I think cycling can be dangerous. Depends where you cycle and whether there are safe roads.

I also don't like how uncomfortable the seats get but that could just be me.

I like jogging so much better.

Jogging is harder but you feel like you're getting better exercise .

I used to really enjoy running but my Achilles just can't really take it.

Re: Cycling or Jogging?

I hate riding a bike; no matter where I put the seat it hurts my prostate. #tmi #oldman

I prefer a brisk walk or walk/jog combo. If anything.

It's a different set of muscles for each, so both.

Re: Cycling or Jogging?

I used to jog, now I'm cycling. IMO, former suits for everyone but latter is mostly advised for young/middle age folks. Anyway, my vote for cycling because of the 'thrill' factor

@Jogging >>>>>>>> Cycling: Not necessarily true. I mean, it depends on case to case basis. Also, working out on a treadmill isn't real jogging.

Re: Cycling or Jogging?

Definitely running. It's my thing. And it keeps my weight in check.

I've seen them. How are they on non-flat surfaces/rough terrain? Do they contain shock absorbers?
