Why does riding a bike make us feel so good?

Cycling has always made me happy. I can’t remember much about my first bike, but getting the second, a shiny silver and red BMX wonder, which arrived one Christmas, was easily the highlight of my childhood. I rode the whole time with friends after school and in the holidays. And it was always sunny. OK, that last part might not be true but it’s difficult for my brain to generate a negative cycling memory.
