Treehugger: Cycling for Health
a study in Denmark, following 30,000 people for 14 years, found a 28% reduction in death rates for those that cycle commuted for 30 minutes per day. A Finnish study similarly noted a 40% drop in diabetes for regular cyclists. The various articles cite many positive health benefits from cycling, with even the British Medical Association suggesting the overall benefits of cycling outweighed the risks by a ratio or 20:1!
It’s so warm in Santa Fe this January that I took my bike for a spin this morning and went grocery shopping in town.
