In my experience regular physical activity helps to combat stress, depression and anxiety. Cycling to work though, can be one of the best ways to improve your well-being everyday. A study carried out across a number of European cities, found that using your bike to get around can help with lowering perceived stress and fighting the feeling of loneliness. The research, conducted by ISGlobal, compared different ways of getting around such as: walking, taking the car or public transport, and claimed that cycling was the number one mode of transport for improving your well-being.

We at Cycle for Africa are determined, after this Covd19 has passed, to get people out on their bikes, in safe neighbourhoods, to restore a sense of inner-wellbeing. In August I am hoping to cycle for two great charities: Cycle for Africa and Combat Stress. If you would like to support my venture, to restore the national mood, then please press HERE.
