It might help a little bit, but bike riding targets the legs more than the abdominals, so it would be good for burning fat, but is not as ideal for firming/strengthening. Pilates is a better route for strenghtening and firming the abs and torso, so a quicker, longer lasting effect would be achieved if both were done 2-3 times a week
