Our expert says:
No, not necessarily. There will be some muscle mass increase, because that's a normal adaptation, but you won't bulk up in the way that you would if you spent an hour a day in the gym.
You'd have to see how it goes, but expect some increase, but not the kind that you're probably afraid of!
in terms of weight loss, all things staying the same, yes, this should help, because that hour of cycling is probably worth 400 kCal, maybe even a little more and if nothing else changes, then you should see some weight loss.
But as you have recognized, you do need to manage the diet, and that makes a big difference. I'd say that for your weight loss, diet is more important than exercise, and given that you're aiming for 1 or 2kg, you do need to look at diet, and that means maybe seeing a dietician for the small details, which make the difference at this level!
