    Health Dilema does it mean a new bike?

    I've always struggled with my weight, don't get me wrong I'm not huge, but I am kind of a big guy. I'm 47 years old and I started cycling about 5 years ago. Started off just going to work, which is only a couple of miles but soon developed to going out for a leisure rides and then to me making...

    Is cyclechat bad for your health?

    I know a number of us may suffer, or have suffered mental health issues. Some of the comments made from what is supposed to be a 'community' are really pretty nasty, and unnecessary. Sometimes people get very wound up, or upset. It is for this reason that I rarely dip into Cyclechat nowadays...

    Cycling doesn’t harm male sexual health.

    A new report has revealed that cycling does not compromise male sexual health so all you guys on here can rest easy. Previous reports have suggested otherwise. http://www.bbc.com/news/health-42651568

    Cars are bad for your health

    I swapped my working car for my brother's older junker in the summer to help him out at a difficult time, and I never really drove it. It massively missed the mark at the MOT and has sat completely unused since then, perhaps September? Either way, it has started to bloom into life: The...

    Meditation & Cycling (Mental & Physical Health Covered?)

    I was interested in a point made by Malcolm Dancy in one of his Audax books. (I forget whether it was the one on LEL or PBP) I really enjoyed these books by the by. Anyway he made reference to meditating using an app at one of his sleep stops. This got me interested in meditation as I sometimes...

    Strava and mental health

    My friend has deleted his Strava account over 20 times in the last 12 months. He opens up a fresh account and sends requests out all over again. Any head quacks know why? I believe he has a self loathe issue and will never be happy with his performance. Maybe people like that should just ride...

    Health benefits to society of cycling

    Whilst walking the dog and listening to the news earlier, the lib dems were talking about raising money for the nhs by increasing income tax by 1%. This got me thinking: instead of giving more money to the nhs, would we better served by making everybody ride bikes? Obviously I'm being rather...

    Icons for healthy living...

    http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-35981098 Good idea or not? The first lot of comments I read below the article were pretty scathing. For me, it might make me think again before stuffing my face with chocolate, esp on a day when I haven't been for a run or a bike ride. I do realise they are...
