In addition to being among the healthiest worker bees, commuters who cycle to work are also the happiest, according to a new research.
Maybe it’s because cyclists don’t need to deal with being pushed up against a stranger in a crowded subway car. Or have to deal with the stress of traffic and aggressive drivers. Maybe it’s because they arrive to work after a solid workout, ready to tackle their day.
For these and other reasons, those who biked to work reported being the happiest during their commute, compared to those who drive or take public transit.
