one has to cross check which muscles are crossing you trouble, but neither running nor cycling can help you unless the cause is those group of muscles. So plz visit some Physio near by and get it assessed once.

Bow legs might be due to a lot of reasons. 1 is Rickets that is Vitamin D deficiency disease of childhood. And it will definitely not improve with cycling. Need to consult an Orthopaedician, and get Xrays and blood tests done. ( Serum alkaline phosphatase and Vitamin D3)

Hello.. Will have to look into the cause. Cycling to reduce the curve is a myth. If the changes are in bone (Tibia) its difficult to return back to normal. But I would suggest you to continue cycling as it will improve strength of limb muscles. It will surely avoid worsening of condition.
