People who commute by bicycle have on average as many as five days of sick leave fewer per year than their less active colleagues! In Porvoo, over one thousand work and school journeys of under one kilometre and 2,500 of under two kilometres are done by car every weekday, even though a significant portion of these could be done on foot or by bicycle.
