The Green Effects of Bike Riding

Posted December 01, 2010

Ride your bike to work day may not be until June 20th, but it’s important to consistently think about the environmental effects of bike riding. Consider this: sitting in traffic each year wastes 2.3 billion gallons of gas, and 25% of carbon emissions come from vehicle exhaust pipes. Opting to ride a bike can lower these figures, while also providing a great outlet for exercise. From a monetary perspective, a decent bicycle can cost around $300-$600, while the average cost of a new car in the U.S. is $28,400, plus basic maintenance, insurance, and gas prices. Click here to calculate how much it really costs you to drive, and compare that to the one-time payment of a bicycle. You’ll discover it truly pays to go green.
