i believe each has its own advantage, it should be dealt appropriately, go on a cycle to a place and than start jogging, return home cycling, so both also will help you.

Both are good exercises if you do in right way and done consistently. Do not be in a hurry to reduce weight. You need to lose weight gradually. Loosing weight suddenly is not good for health

Cycling has an advantage as all the muscles of leg and arm is used. we can increase the speed also but the disadvantage is its done in one place only, i feel bored because of it.

Hi
Welcome to HealthcareMagic

Cycling when done for 25 minutes burns 100 calories whereas jogging when done for 14 minutes burns the same 100 calories. This means jogging is better than cycling in burning calories faster. But it also varies with the intensity of doing the exercise.

I just wonder which one will cause a more serious health problem in the future. You know, back, joints, and muscle difficulties.
