Happy happy cyclists

CyclingHappy

Cycling makes you happy, its official. Well we all know this to be a fact as committed cyclophiles, but 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.

More details on the study can be found here (in Danish).

    It does seem mighty obvious Steve, I agree. We are happy that they are happy
