Why should you ride your bike to work? Isn’t driving faster? Well, yes, but there’s still many reasons to ride to work.

  • For one, it is great exercise. You don’t have to worry about working out after that long work day, or getting up early to do so. You get your daily exercise in just by going to and from work, it’s a two-in-one! Not to mention, it’s a great form of exercise that gets your heartbeat going. It can be effective cardiovascular benefit.
  • Two, you’ll save money, who doesn’t like that? No more pumping gas and putting money towards that when you’re riding your bike everywhere. And, you might be able to even get rid of your car if you’re not using it, then getting rid of that car payment and insurance, saving you even more! You’ll no longer have to worry about parking or getting sick using a public transit.
  • And lastly, and what we believe to be the most important reason, it keeps our planet clean and green! You inhale more harmful exhaust in your car than on a bike, though fuel emissions are bad news in general, drivers are actually more susceptible to harmful air than bicyclists. So, not only are you saving yourself from these harmful fuels, but the planet too. It reduces noise pollution, and helps saves forests since making tires for bikes takes less rubber than tires for cars, helping prevent clearing for forests for rubber plantations.

We could go on for days on why you should ride your bike to work, and how it helps save the planet! But, we rather have you riding then reading this blog post.
