Feeling a little down now that all the mince pies have gone? Here’s a little idea to cheer you up and get you in shape for the new year…
Cycling makes you happy, it’s official. A Danish study for the Danish Cyclists Federation by local market research organisation Megafon has now found evidence that cyclists are the happiest people in the transport chain.
The happiness that cyclists feel with their mode of transportation is far greater than that of people who travel on buses, trains and people who drive cars, though the responses don’t quite hit the 5 rating of beaming happy.
Cyclists also have the best feeling of well being and feel less anxiety about their mode of transportation than people who travel by bus, train or car, the study finds. The research involved interviews 1,007 with respondents.
