(SAVANNAH, GA) Reasons to cycle: Sleep more deeply. Stanford University School of Medicine researchers asked sedentary insomnia sufferers to cycle for 20-30 minutes every other day. The result? The time required for the insomniacs to fall asleep was reduced by half, and sleep time increased by almost an hour. "Exercising outside exposes you to daylight," explains Professor Jim Horne from Loughborough University’s Sleep Research Centre. "This helps get your circadian rhythm back in sync, and also rids your body of cortisol, the stress hormone that can prevent deep, regenerative sleep." https://bicyclecampaign.org/
