    Hard to guess the causality. Are happier, fitter, richer people more likely to bike, or does biking make one more likely to be happy, fit, and rich? Maybe it works both ways at the same time.

  • Alan says:


    Agreed; it’s hard to say which comes first. Like you say, probably a little of both.

  • John Ferguson says:

    Let’s find out! Let’s find some miserable, overweight, poor people and give them bikes to see if it fixes them! I sense a thesis opportunity..

  • Ted Johnson says:

    I reckon it has just a little to do with municipalities that make cycling a priority, promote it, and stop privileging just one type of user of the infrastructure.
