Rich Cyclists

From todays Times:

The richest fifth of the population cycle on average 2½ times as far in a year as the poorest fifth.

and

Studies have shown that regular cyclists typically enjoy a level of fitness equivalent to someone 10 years younger, and those cycling regularly beyond their mid-thirties add two years to their life expectancy.

Now which comes first, the being rich or the cycling?

Comments:

From my student point of view cycling makes me richer than owning a car this is assuming however I don't spend the my extra spare money on frivolous bike bits that I don't need.

Well are you rich yet since you certainly do enough cycling :-)

There is no such thing as enough cycling
