We all know that cycling is a form of exercise that is more beneficial to health than just a entertainment. Essentially, cycling ensures the safety of the heart.
A new study claims a link between cycling and our lifespan. The study is based on researchers from the universities of Otago, New Zealand attempted to answer the question with a study using 10 years of census data to examine the mortality rates of cyclist vs no-cyclist.
The study found that cyclists on a daily basis were more likely to have longevity. Researchers have actually studied the ways in which commuters routinely travel to work and how well they influence their physical and mental health.
The study found that most people rely on buses, cars, motorcycles, but only few people rely on bicycles and they are healthier than others.
According to the study only 3% of New Zealanders and only 0.6% of Americans bike to work, this is partially due to lack of infrastructure for bike in both countries.
There are cyclists on and off the job, not just for work. This study is very valuable to them. Cycling has many advantages such as: maintaining heart health, increasing muscle strength, strengthening joints, reducing stress, improving body composition, strengthening bones, reducing fat and reducing the risk of illness. Anyway, if you know how to ride a bike, take some time to spend some time everyday.
