Continue: The spider veins are not due to biking. You must have a tendency to form them. Exercise is good for your heath. Keep biking and have your spiders treated.

Not at all: Little spider veins are not a health risk. On the other hand, you are decreasing other health risks by biking. The benefits of bike riding and other exercise are far more important than the fact that bike riding has given you some spider veins. So keep riding your bike.
