Bike Century – back to our future

Now, there’s no database of this stuff but I’m pretty sure that most of the things that are as fun as being on a bike just aren’t that good for you, either directly, like lots and lots of ice cream, or indirectly, like long summer road trips in 1960s Holdens. I’m fairly certain a Kingswood station wagon, or ‘Hotel Holden’ as it was known in our house, is equivalent to a 747 when it comes to pollution.

But according to Bike Century’s Facebook page, Danish research suggests that “daily cycling – and we’re only talking 5-6 km a day at a pedestrian pace – is enough to extend your life by 7 years.” Bonus or what?!
