Cycling away the The coronavirus pandemic has really dealt Belgian morale a blow. According to a recent study by the University of Ghent, happiness levels among the Belgian population have dipped from 67.3% before the crisis to 62.1% today. And as many as 30% of Belgians even describe themselves as unhappy.
That said, other studies have shown that cycling promotes the release of hormones, including the so-called euphoria hormone endorphin. Cycling also clears your mind and frees your spirit.
That’s why – now more than ever– we want to encourage people to start (or carry on) cycling so that we can give the happiness levels of everyone in Brussels a boost!
