UK bicycle scheme has positive health benefits
Posted by : Michelle CampbellMonday, February 17th, 2014
The introduction of a bicycle rental scheme in London has improved the amount of physical exercise undertaken by those who live in the UK capital.
The benefits of the bicycle rental scheme have cancelled out the potential problems such as pollution or injury. The results of the study were published in the BMJ journal. Researchers discovered that the scheme is more likely to be used by younger adults, and men are more likely to use it than women. However, the study also showed that those who are aged 45 and older will see more health benefits than those who are younger.
The researchers have suggested that reducing the possible injuries that cyclists could face will help to improve health benefits. It has long been known that those who do very little exercise can face a number of different health challenges including heart disease, stroke, diabetes, depression and several different types of cancer. Similar cycling schemes have already been introduced in 49 different countries around the world, but the health benefits of such schemes had not been analyzed.
The analysis was carried out using surveys of those who rent the bicycles, various data sources on travel in the city, and data from each rental from the period between April 2011 and March 2012. Originally, the bicycle rental scheme raised fears that people would be injured, particularly inexperienced cyclists, but the evidence has suggested that injury rates among cyclists have not risen.

Because my job is so stressful I like to play hard! I belong to a Karate club and after only four years in the sport I am a Black Belt Shodan Ho. I love to take part in competitions and I often win!
We also like to bowl and do so competitively at a local bowling center.
I spend my spare time studying with an online college for a recognized nursing qualification. I have also loved writing from a very young age and I am particularly interested in contributing to blogs that cover the care of the elderly, and the management of age related illnesses.
