Green / Sustainability IdeasIs your bike gathering dust in your garage? Why not consider  cleaning it off, pumping up those tires and joining the myriad other bicyclers who are commuting to work these days? You’ll not only help the environment by leaving your car at home, but you’ll improve your health at the same time.

According to The League of American Bicyclists:

  • Bicycle commuting burns an average of 540 calories per hour.
  • The average person loses 13 pounds in the first year of commuting by bike.
  • A daily 4-mile bike commute saves about 66 gallons of fuel a year.
  • Bicycling 20 miles a week reduces women’s risk of heart disease by 50%.
