Infographic: How Bikes Can Save Us

We love all of the bicycle-inspired infographics popping up these days. This one makes it pretty clear: you’re going to save a lot of money and maybe your life by riding your bike to work. A few choice bits we pulled out…

  • 20 bikes can be parked in the same space as 1 car
  • Bikes are 50% faster than cars during rush hour
  • Adding 30 minutes of daily cycling saves us $544 in medical costs annually
  • The average person loses 13 pounds in their first year of riding

Definitely makes us feel good about hopping on our bikes everyday.
