Did you know that you could save 407 gallons of gasoline each year – half the amount burned by a car annually – if you biked to work instead of driving?
Bicycling reduces dependence on scarce, polluting oil supplies almost completely. You can travel hundreds of miles by bicycle on no more than a thimbleful of oil.
Bicycling creates no air pollution. Because you do not burn any kind of fuel but your own when you bicycle, you can ride through the environment without leaving a trace!
This is also good exercise and helps keep you fit and slim. Apart from walking, there is no more energy-efficient way to get to work than by bike!
