The 43-year-old STEP ON singer, who has had a well-documented battle with hard drugs, regularly cycles through the English countryside and has also changed his drinking habits in a bid to improve his physique.
Ryder explains, "I wouldn't go so far as to join a gym but I've taken up cycling where I live in the Peak District. F**king lovely.
"And recently I've given up drinking Guinness because it's too fattening. Instead, I'm drinking lightweight lagers like Corona."
As for getting his teeth fixed, he says, "And I plucked up the courage to get my teeth sorted out. It cost a few bob.
"I had really good teeth until five years ago then the bottom ones started to go because they had tobacco or heroin stains on them.
