Wellington Bike Life is a series of profiles of people who ride bikes in Wellington. Today we meet health researcher Matt Jenkins.
"I love cycling. It's one of my favorite activities to do. It gives me lots of good heart health and also gives me that
sort of psychological shower on the way to work."

"The mental health benefits of cycling are enormous. You know, that sense of joy that we all feel when we get on the bike.
For the mental health benefits to really come to the fore, people need to feel safe on a bike and that means actually having a safe passage from wherever they're coming from to wherever they're going to."
