Still Here

Distinct lack of posting activity for the last month. Usual excuses: work, family. So this will be a short post, just to keep the blog alive. I found an interesting study from Denmark, quantifying the health benefits of commuting by bicycle (full article here). This type of study is only possible in Copenhagen, where a significant percentage of the population bicycles regularly. Controlling for all other factors, including leisure-time activity, the study found a 40% reduction in mortality for those who bicycle to work. It's fun, saves money and the environment, and you'll live longer. Come on, join us!
