New study from Bayreuth: Significant increase in cycling in major cities after the 2020 beginning of COVID-19 lockdown

The pandemic-related closure of sports fields, gyms, and fitness studios in Germany has led to a significant increase in cycling in the public green spaces of large cities. This is the conclusion reached by researchers at the University of Bayreuth in a new study published in PLOS ONE. The study is based on anonymised data from the Strava fitness app, which is used by more than 73 million people worldwide.
