It appears so: Exercise allows you to age optimally | Physiological Society

It was kind of ridiculous that the Independent article was titled "The secret of eternal youth: skin-tight Lycra and a bicycle", as 1) Lycra has nothing to do with it, b) it wasn't about cycling vs. other forms of exercise, it was about finding a population of people who had a high level of fitness, and they used cycling as that measure.

Typical lazy, poorly-informed journalism.
