Okay, ride as little or as much as you want but for neurological benefits it sounds like about an hour is best.
“Research suggests that 30-60 minutes of steady riding at a sustained pace is ideal to reap the neurological benefits of biking.”
I’ve often thought that 20 km would be perfect commute distance. For me, that’s in that happy sweet spot. I’ve never lived that far away from work. My real life commutes have been between 15 and 30 minutes.
Maybe I’ll look for a house in the countryside….
What’s your favorite weekday distance?
(Weekends I love 60-100 km, preferably with sunshine, rolling hills, good friends, and breakfast.)
