Do you currently bike to work, the gym or to do errands? Are you planning on starting once it cools down? If so, then join the 1 World 2 Wheels community*!
This is a great resource; here are some stats from the site:
- "Just 3 hours of bicycling per week can reduce your risk of heart disease and stroke by 50%."
- "The U.S. could save 462 million gallons of gasoline a year by increasing cycling from 1% to 1.5% of all trips."
- "60% of the pollution created by automobile emissions happens in the first few minutes of operation, before pollution control devices can work effectively."
