Bike repair workshop - Cycle Revival

According to a study in Cycling Weekly, cyclists experience less mental issues than those who do very little or no exercise, or don’t take part in any team sports. This study was taken from a cross-section, of around 1.2 million people in America.

It was found that those who exercised in general suffered 43% fewer bad mental health days than those who did no exercise.


Those who took part in team sports had the best mental health, with cyclists second, ahead of those who took part in aerobics and gym activities.  Those who played a team sport saw a 22 per cent reduction in their mental health burden, whilst cyclists enjoyed a 21 per cent reduction and gym users a 20 per cent reduction.

A 45 minute duration of exercise, between three and five times a week, was associated with the lowest risk to mental health.

It also took into account other factors such as age, race, gender, marital status, income, self-reported physical health and more. The study looked at the effects of exercise type, duration, frequency, and intensity.

So this goes to prove, get your bike out, get on the roads, enjoy the fresh air and do some exercise. Great for your health and happiness!
