Benefits of Cycling

  • Improved fitness and health...cycling is ranked among the top three most common exercises for improving cardiovascular fitness.
  • Cycling at least 20 miles a week reduces the risk of heart disease to less than half that for sedentary non-cyclists
  • Regular cyclists enjoy a fitness level equal to that of a person 10 years younger.
  • Save fuel and reduce carbon dioxide emissions...If one million people in the U.S. commuted by bike two miles to work once a week, we would decrease carbon dioxide emissions by 50,000 tons per year.
  • Fun and healthy way to commute...40 percent of all trips are two miles or less, but 90 percent are taken by car. Try cycling to your destination instead!
