The health risks and benefits of cycling in urban environments compared with car use: health impact assessment study

Excellent study published in the British Medical Journal stating that:

"The health benefits of physical activity from cycling using the bicycle sharing scheme (Bicing) in Barcelona, Spain, were large compared with the risks from inhalation of air pollutants and road traffic incidents.

Public bicycle sharing schemes can help improve public health."
