The reciprocal effects of physical activities and ride-sourcing on health

Do you ever wonder the impacts of your intense physical activities, e.g. running and cycling, to the rest of your day's activities' participation? And whether the use of ridesharing for simple short trips would increase/decrease the probability of one to participate in more physical-demanding activities in home and work locations? This study explores the role of convenience travel alternative and the intensity of physically active activities to one's subjective health assessment. The paper can be found here.
