Cycling to work: major new study suggests health benefits are staggering ➜

This study makes quite a compelling case for cycling.

We found that cycling to work was associated with a 41% lower risk of dying overall compared to commuting by car or public transport. Cycle commuters had a 52% lower risk of dying from heart disease and a 40% lower risk of dying from cancer. They also had 46% lower risk of developing heart disease and a 45% lower risk of developing cancer at all.

Fascinating, and, if I may be frank, validating.
