The Wealthy Ride More!

Apparently the wealthy are more likely to ride bikes than the poor - overturning the belief that cycling is a poor person's transport.

The article in the Times can be found here:
The wealthy are more informed about the benefits of bicycles, both environmental and physical.

In particular:

"Studies have shown that regular cyclists typically enjoy a level of fitness equivalent to someone 10 years younger, and those cycling regularly beyond their mid-thirties add two years to their life expectancy."
