cycling don't really works the tummy. it does helps burn more fat on yur thighs thou. if yur waistline is not really that big, do crunches or sit ups 3 times a day, 2sets of 20 (slowly increase to 30) each time. it'll give u a nice 6 pec very soon. if 20 is too much do 15 for a start.

No, not correct. There is no specific exercise to reduce tummy. Only aerobics activities (walking, running, cycling etc) can burn fat in a proper manner, and it will burn from all your body. Getting a slimmer tummy is just consequence, unless you go for a lipo.

Cycling or running? I would pick cycling, it offers less impact to you, and it is much easier for beginners. Did you try walking? try 3 minutes walking, 3 minutes running, during 45 minutes everyday. I do run/walk everyday 6KM, and it has been great to me and my body.

Doing abs does not burn fat, it will only develop muscles, but the fat still will be there. Remember: aerobics.
