How healthy is exercising along the Utrecht Singel canal?

3 March 2022

Because of the 385th birthday of Utrecht University and UMC Utrecht, residents of Utrecht could submit their questions. The questions varied from ‘what is smell?’ to ‘what will Utrecht look like in 900 years?’. For four weeks, RTV Utrecht and scientists from Utrecht will be answering these questions. In the fourth and final episode, RTV Utrecht meets up with epidemiologist Ulrike Gehring.

How healthy is it to exercise along the Singel canal with all these cars passing by? RTV Utrecht and Ulrike Gehring get on their bikes to answer this question.
