What type of exercise is best for maintaining strong and healthy bones?

What type of exercise is best for maintaining strong and healthy bones? Studies comparing the effects of high-endurance cycling and ultra-marathon running suggest that exercise that puts greater strain on bones, like running, tends to improve bone health more effectively than non weight-bearing activities such as cycling. Regular moderate exercise is vital for everyone, of course, but researchers recommend that people who are at an elevated risk of weaker bones should consider taking up running rather than cycling or swimming.
