Statistic of the day: Feb. 11, 2000
Trying to keep the love flowing despite all this work. Coming soon: Leatt neck braces, the role of arms in jumping.
For now, a sobering statistic for all you auto commuters:
Each hour per day spent driving corresponds with a 6% increase in the odds of being obese.
– Frank, L., et al., 2004, “Obesity relationships with community design, physical activity, and time spent in cars,” American Journal of Preventive Medicine, 27, 87-96
Considering I drive 120 miles a day to and from work, I guess I’d better get my fat arce on the bike.
Anybody want to by a Tacoma?
I thought drivers would get lots of exercise, namely running, hurling, bending and carrying…
… red lights, abuse, road rules and conversations on cell phones, respectively.
Yeah, adaptation of an old joke, I know, I know. I’m not serious. I actually love my car as it takes buddies and me to far away trails.
Haha that doesnt make sense… after 16.666666 hours u will be obese? I cant wait for the Leatt brace review as Lee already knows. and jumping will make this site even better.
If you drive 16.6 hours a day, that leaves less than 8 hours to sleep. If you spend all your time driving and sleeping, you’re gonna get fat.
Unless you multi-task.
It finally was light enough for long enough for me to ride to work again. _Much_ better than the car.
And Josh, a “6% increase in the odds” means that after 16.6 hours, you’ll be 100% *more* likely (i.e. twice as likely) to be obese, not that you have a 100% chance. Initially, I had the same thought as you.
