In this issue of JAMA Internal Medicine, Ried-Larsen and colleagues1 report a longitudinal study of the benefits of cycling in a large cohort of persons with diabetes, with 110 944 person-years of follow-up, from 10 Western European countries. Cycling was associated with at least a 24% lower all-cause mortality when compared with noncyclists, independent of other physical activities and possible confounders.
