As an elderly cyclist I quite like hearing the results of this type of survey but I take them all with a very large pinch of salt.

What they are telling us is that a bunch of relatively fit and healthy old folks are in a better state than other less fit and healthy old folk. Who would have thunk it!

Could it just be that people who have a natural drive to keep fit and healthy often take up cycling, so it is their very nature that keeps them younger than their peers. And whether they ride bikes, swim, walk, run, ski, lift weights or row is irrelevant - these people will almost always age better.

I love cycling but it is not the only, or even necessarily the best, form of exercise.
