    Resumen

    Objetivo: Evaluar la asociación entre el ciclismo de ida y vuelta a la escuela y la composición corporal, el estado físico y el síndrome metabólico en una muestra de niños y adolescentes colombianos. Diseño del estudio: Durante el año escolar 2014-2015, examinamos un componente transversal de la Asociación para la Fuerza Muscular con manifestación temprana de los factores de riesgo de enfermedades cardiovasculares en niños y adolescentes colombianos (FUPRECOL). Entre los participantes había 2.877 jóvenes (54,5% niñas) de Bogotá, Colombia. Se utilizó un cuestionario autodiagnosticado para medir la frecuencia y el modo de desplazarse a la escuela. Se midieron cuatro componentes de la aptitud física: (1) antropométrico (altura, peso, índice de masa corporal y circunferencia de la cintura); (2) musculoesquelético (prueba de agarre y salto de longitud de pie); (3) motor (prueba de agilidad de velocidad; carrera del transbordador de 4 × 10 metros); y (4) cardiorrespiratorio (prueba de carrera del transbordador de 20 metros[20mSRT]). La prevalencia del síndrome metabólico fue determinada por las definiciones proporcionadas por la Federación Internacional de Diabetes. Resultados: Veintitrés por ciento de la muestra informaron que se desplazaban en bicicleta. Los niños activos que viajaban al trabajo tenían una probabilidad de tener un valor insalubre de 4 × 10 m (OR, 0,72; IC del 95%: 0,53 a 0,98; P = 0,038) en comparación con el grupo de referencia (pasajeros pasivos). Las niñas activas que viajaban al trabajo mostraron una menor probabilidad de tener un valor no saludable de 20mSRT (OR, 0,81; IC del 95%: 0,56 a 0,99; P = 0,047) y síndrome metabólico (OR, 0,61; IC del 95%: 0,35 a 0,99; P = 0,048) en comparación con las que viajaban al trabajo de forma pasiva. Conclusión: La bicicleta regular a la escuela puede estar asociada con una mejor condición física y una menor incidencia de síndrome metabólico que el transporte pasivo, especialmente en las niñas.

Participants included 2877 youths (54.5{\%} girls) from Bogota, Colombia. A self-reported questionnaire was used to measure the frequency and mode of commuting to school. Four components of physical fitness were measured: (1) anthropometric (height, weight, body mass index, and waist circumference); (2) musculoskeletal (handgrip and standing long jump test); (3) motor (speed-agility test; 4 × 10-meter shuttle run); and (4) cardiorespiratory (20-m shuttle run test [20mSRT]). The prevalence of metabolic syndrome was determined by the definitions provided by the International Diabetes Federation. Results: Twenty-three percent of the sample reported commuting by cycle. Active commuting boys had a likelihood of having an unhealthy 4 × 10 m value (OR, 0.72; 95{\%} CI, 0.53-0.98; P = .038) compared with the reference group (passive commuters).
