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.

Ditch Your Car: Biking By the Numbers

Awesome infographic put together by our friends over at Nau, using data from Bikes Belong, an advocacy group whose work helps to promote cycling nation-wide. via Nau

In getting to know the Boulder-based organization, we also got exposed to their thought-provoking data. But while the numbers are great, a picture is better.

Enough to make you want to ditch your car and ride your bike? Yeah, we thought so.

Travel Tuesday: Which State Has the Most Passports?

How many of you out there have a passport? We’re assuming since you’re Osprey-loving, blog-reading, adventurous types, chances are that you do. Check out this interesting infographic on passport ownership by state.

How does your state rank?

And if you’re still in the sans passport group, you might want to pay extra attention to the new regulations that went into effect on April 1, 2011.

Our friends at Gadling report that “the U.S. Department of State now requires the full names of the applicant’s parent(s) to be listed on all certified birth certificates to be considered as primary evidence of U.S. citizenship for all passport applicants, regardless of age. Certified birth certificates missing this information are no longer acceptable as evidence of citizenship.”
