If you're cycling to lose weight I would suggest sticking to cycling. It sounds like you don't really want to cycle.

I cycled for many years. Wearing a backpack while cycling is not good for the back. I suspect you may already have back issues (due to weight). A backpack will make them worse.

Also, there is not likely a backpack that will 100% protect your gear if you fall, especially if you fall while moving.

I agree here , its bad if you go over the bars and land on the backpack, been there done that many years ago. I have a Altura cycle bag that fits to the seat post, big enough for a large body with medium sizes zoom, mine is a much older version of this. I pack the camera with a little foam for extra protection.
