Cycling is faster than walking and quicker than driving in many towns and cities. It keeps you fit and is cheaper besides being totally carbon dioxide free! It will take you to visit your neighbor, go to school, or the office, or the shops, make you healthy and save you a lot of money!
For every five mile trip you cycle rather than drive you’re saving one kg. of carbon dioxide! Choose cycling over driving to work and back and you would save 466 kg. a year.
If you can coax your neighbor to do the same, or your family and other friends, that’s one tonne of carbon dioxide saved between you – plus fewer cars on the roads, less exhaust fumes and fewer accidents. And the planet is getting greener right under your feet!
