The graph above is based on the 792 people (workers/students and based in Dublin) who chose cycling as a realistic way they could travel to work/college. They’re people who consider themselves healthy and fit enough to cycle on a regular basis.

Of the 792 people polled:

453 hadn’t cycled at all in the previous two weeks. They had an average happiness level of 14.2/25

98 people had cycled 1 – 9 times in the previous two weeks. They had an average happiness level of 13.9/25

241 people cycled more than 10 times in the previous two weeks. They had an average happiness level of 15.5/25
