Cycling to work associated with major health benefits – new study
More data on health benefits of cycling to work
Risk of early death down by 41%. Risk of developing cardiovascular disease or cancer down by 45%. Amazing stats from an analysis of the Biobank data from 250,000 45-60 year-olds. Comparison was between those travelling to work by car or public transport and those (2.6% of the total) who cycled to work. So, catch the Bike Train, everyone!
