  • Avoiding just 10 miles of driving every week would eliminate 500 pounds of carbon dioxide emissions a year.
  • The 1995 National Personal Transportation Survey (NPTS) found that approximately 40% of all car trips are less than 2 miles in length — which represents a 10-minute bike ride or less than 40-minutes of walking. Also, since “cold starts” create high levels of emissions, shorter car trips are more polluting on a per-mile basis than longer trips.
  • The cost of operating a car for one year is approximately $5,170. The cost of operating a bicycle for a year is only $120. Walking is free!
