Here’s an interesting infographic on the benefits of biking and the dangers of a sedentary lifestyle. The image outlines how much Americans drive, how much pollution of this driving causes and how biking instead of driving can have a dramatically beneficial effect.
Not only is biking better for the health of Americans and for the environment, the infographic also attempts to illustrate how biking could save America billions of dollars.
As always such infographics need to be taken with a grain of salt. However, I don’t think it’s too hard to imagine that less driving and more biking would benefit all of us.
