Cognitive Bike Therapy

Today is #TimeToTalk day. More people struggle with their mental health than you know, and while the outdoors can't cure that, time outside with friends or alone can help to clear your head, put things into perspective and release those feel good endorphins.

In an article written just over a year ago, Stu from GO Swansea wrote about how finding cycling helped him with his own depression. It's time to talk, and we should all be willing to listen.
