Cycling is a popular mode of aerobic fitness that burns calories while strengthening the leg muscles. More than one-third of Americans rides a bike, according to a survey from Breakaway Research Group. Some people occasionally cycle for fun, and other people are more serious riders who spend hours a day on a bike. Men who bike can experience erection problems as an unintended consequence of spending too much time on a bike seat. When you sit on a bike for long periods of time, the seat puts pressure on your perineum, an area that runs between your anus and penis. The perineum is filled with arteries and nerves that supply oxygen-rich blood and sensation to your penis.
