Ride a bike and help the environment while losing carbon emmissions : bicycleforaday.org

Hello!

Bicycle for a Day is my effort to help protect the environment, improve personal
health, and have fun with my friends and family. Our mission is to help empower
individuals with tools which they can use in their everyday lives to make a
measurable, tangible difference to our community, our environment and our
personal health.

There are dozens of things each of us can do that have an immediate, positive
impact on the environment. Bicycling is one. Here are some facts about
bicycling:

  • The average person loses 13 pounds their first year of commuting by bicycle.
  • 3 hours of cycling per week can reduce your risk of heart attack or stroke by
    50%.
  • In 1964, 50% of kids rode to school and the obesity rate was 12%. In 2004, 3%
    rode to school and the obesity rate was 45%.
  • The United States could save 462 million gallons of gasoline per year by
    increasing cycling from 1% to 1.5% of all trips.
  • Each auto-commuter in the U.S. spends an average of 50 hours a year stuck in
    traffic.
  • In 2003, cars stalled in traffic wasted 5 billion gallons of fuel.

At our first event last September in New York City, more than 14,000 people
visited the South Street Seaport and learned more about Bicycle for a Day
(BFAD). Families came together, friendships were formed, and participants had a
great time learning more about their city, their community, and what they can do
to renew their commitment to a greener, cleaner earth.

Thanks for visiting the site.
