A desk bike is the ideal way to increase activity levels during sedentary office hours; even set at its lower resistance.

Any way to reduce your risk of a health condition is a good enough reason to get on the desk bike trend. Exercise science professor John Buckley, of university centre Shrewsbury confirms that a bike desk can reduce health conditions such as strokes, heart attacks and diabetes.
