Biking to School Makes Girls Smarter

Girls who walked or biked to school in a recent Spanish study performed better at school in verbal and math skills then their cohorts who rode the bus or rode a car, according to this story from Reuters News.

And the longer the girls in the study commuted, the better they performed - regardless of how much other exercise and sports activity they reported.

Interestingly, the Spanish study indicates that it didn't have the same effect for boys.  But don't get discouraged, boys, it will still make you healthier.
