A nugget from the story:

But there was one tiny, peculiar group whom the Canadian
government found in its data—3 percent of respondents—who claimed that
commuting was the best part of their day—and who didn’t seem as fazed by
lengthy commutes. Who on Earth were these people?
They were bikers, mostly. Nineteen percent of people who rode their bikes to
work said commuting was their most delightful daily activity, compared
to only 2 percent of drivers who felt the same way. (People who walked
to work were also significantly more likely to enjoy commuting than
people who drove, but biking was yet a stronger predictor.)
