“I highly recommend cycling to anyone who wants to get healthier in general.

Cycling is good exercise for people who have had concussions and/or suffer from migraines. It increases the blood flow to the brain while keeping the head in a relatively stable position. It is a relatively low-impact sport, which is good for people with neck pain and headaches and those with bad knees or feet.

Cycling is also a very practical exercise in that you can use it for traveling, which has benefits for the community in terms of reducing crowded streets and pollution.”
