Cycling to school
RICH has received 1.5 mill. DKK from TrygFonden to the research in Health Effects in cycling to school
In previous research we have shown that children cycling to school have better cardiovascular fitness levels and lower risk of developing cardiovascular diseases.
We have commenced a study including 24 schools. By random selection 12 schools are selected to participate in various activities promoting cycling as transport to school. Partly to see if it is possible to increase cycling and to also to investigate if children starting with cycling to school actually improve their general state of health.
The project is carried out in collaboration with the Danish Cyclist Association
