How to live longer: Cyclists shown to have 23% better chance of avoiding premature death

Wiggins adds his friend Phil Griffiths “said this wonderful thing to me: ‘No therapist has ever been able to do for me what a bike does’

“The bike is a great antidepressant”.

Wiggins, like Alistair Campbell, has a form of depression.

Wiggins is frank about his experience with the condition: “I have to have routine. Training every day, it’s important. Not drinking too much. With my depression, if I’m not looking after myself it manifests more like a mania. I always thought of depression as taking you to a dark room in a stoop. I try to be funnier and end up being shocking and contentious”.
