Default Insulin resistance vs Exercise

I control BG by LCHF diet and exercise and BG is in good control.
When I do biking for 20 minutes after meal BG drops between 20 - 30 points.Like from 120 to 95.Is this shows I have high insulin resistance ? Is it good idea to add Metformin to help further on insulin resistance ?

Not necessarily. It could simply mean you have exhausted your supply of glycogen.

Can you exercise consistently? It is very good for your heart, brain, and blood glucose levels ...

I do exercise almost every day. Thought I may be more insulin resistant and adding Metformin will help the body.If BG is in good range with diet & exercise , adding Metformin don't make any good ?

Well if you are THAT good, not really. What are your postmeal spikes like? If it could smooth the bumps, maybe it would be worthwhile.
