The best kind of ther­apy

BIKE (UK) - - LETTERS - John Hale, email

I’ve rid­den mo­tor­cy­cles for over 40 years and must have saved the NHS a for­tune. I, like many oth­ers, have suf­fered from stress and de­pres­sion from work prob­lems, fi­nan­cial is­sues etc and I know I would have been on some form of med­i­ca­tion at times if it were not for bik­ing. When things all get too much I go for a ride. Some­times it’s an hour or two and oth­ers it’s for a few weeks. When I re­turn I al­ways feel bet­ter equipped and stronger to deal with things. No need for a trip to the doc for a box of happy pills.

The drugs don’t work, but rid­ing does
