New Study Says Cycling Is The Healthiest Way To Get Around Cities


Though most of us know biking our daily commute instead of using a car to get to work is better for the planet, it can seem intimidating if you're not used to it. But if you're looking to get in better shape or balance out your weekly habit of ordering your favorite greasy takeout on Seamless, you might want to rethink the bike. A new study says cycling is not only the healthiest way to get around but also helps combat obesity.

The findings, from research conducted in Europe, were published in Environment International, show that cycling yielded the best results in every analysis. Bicycles were associated with better self-perceived general health, better mental health, greater vitality, lower self-perceived stress, and fewer feelings of loneliness. The second most beneficial transport mode, walking, was associated with good self-perceived general health, greater vitality, and more contact with friends and/or family.
