Brian Robinson, the British cycling legend who became the first Briton to finish the Tour de France in 1956 and the first to win a Tour stage in 1958; has been cited by the BBC as a great example of how endurance cycling can help you to live longer. Robinson told the BBC that ‘I do have a healthy lifestyle. I can recommend cycling. They say it gives you an extra 10 years of life – another decade would do me fine.’ Research studies that show an association between endurance cycling and life longevity have provided concrete evidence of the benefits that endurance cycling can have on the life-span of the general population. Dr. Xavier Jouven, of the European Georges Pompidou Hospital in Paris, has previously been involved in such data analysis. He told the BBC that ‘we should encourage people to exert themselves,’ and discounted the dangers of high-level exercise.
