In the time we already spend getting to work, we can get the exercise we need, but "don't have time for". Commuting to work by bike or for neighborhood errands is within easy reach of people of any level of fitness and a great way to get fit and stay healthy. Besides having fun and getting healthier, you'll be improving our air quality and reducing traffic congestion. The bicycle is the most energy-efficient form of travel ever devised—so you'll be reducing energy use and our dependence on fossil fuels.
The Benefits of Cycling
- Improved health and fitness: Biking is a low-stress, low-impact exercise that can be performed by people of all ages and fitness levels.
- Save money: The only fuel you need is food! Cut your insurance costs by driving fewer miles in your car too!
- Easier and less expensive parking: With the proper locking device, you can park your bike safely closer to your destination and usually for free.
- Environmentally-friendly: Biking reduces the number of cars on the road, reducing traffic congestion. It is also a non-polluting mode of transportation!
