Dutch cyclists have longer lives say researchers

Researchers at the University of Utrecht say that Dutch cyclists live longer than people who do not use a bike.

They say the evidence proves that cycling is not just good for your health but adds an average of six months to life expectancy.

People in the Netherlands cycle an average of 74 minutes per week.
