Cycling, like many other physical activities, that could be reversed dramatically, especially on such illnesses such as obesity and diabetes 2, but it's attempting to change habits and educating people of the benefits of regular exercise and reversing this trend. An in-depth research study was conducted using qualitative research methodology (i.e. through structured in-depth interviews) and took place from September 20th to October 3rd, 2014. The findings of this study showed that cycling may improve our ability to concentrate and retain information, thus making us a smarter person. From the environmental side, cycling is an environmentally friendly activity and people can reach their destinations much faster by cycling than car, thus saving money
