I've been commissioned to write a magazine article on the mental health benefits of cycling. We all know that cycling makes you feel better (when you're not being cut up by a minicab, like last night) - but this will attempt to explain why. I'll be talking to various medical experts.
As part of the article, it would be good to have some personal experiences of how cycling has helped people. We all know about straightforward mood-lifting, for example - we all get down sometimes, especially if you're a Hull City supporter like me.
But I'd also like to hear from anyone with experiences of how cycling might have helped them cope with genuine depression - or not.

Obviously I won't give real names or any other identifying details in the article (unless you want me to).
