ADR Scotland study reveals mental health benefits of cycling to work

The study builds on previous ADR Scotland research, which used Census 2011 data to explore factors affecting people’s probability of cycling to work, such as distance to cycle path and gender.

The new findings show that cycling to work, when compared to all other modes of commute, reduces the likelihood of experiencing mental ill-health – specifically anxiety and depression.
