Cycling

There are so many reasons to get outside and ride your bike! For one, cycling already aligns with physical distancing recommendations. But did you know that cycling can transform the world? Choosing your bike over your car can help to:

  • Reduce air pollution (especially CO2 and NOx, two common GHG’s from vehicle exhaust)
  • Reduce noise pollution (no motors, no problem!)
  • Reduce time spent sitting in traffic
  • Boost your physical health
  • Reduce demand for road widening, parking lots, and the raw materials for car production
  • Boost social connection and use of shared public spaces
  • Save money! Once you get your bike, you never need to worry about paying for gas or any other car maintenance fees.
