Here is a link to an AWESOME poster that “Bikes Belong” created, and Jen H. at PCEI showed me today (thanks Jen!)
Some of the most striking statistics stated in the poster to me are:
- Adolescents who bicycle are 48% less likely to be overweight as adults!
- The average American household spends over $8,000 per year on owning and driving their cars – more than they spend on food!!!
- For every 1 mile pedaled rather than driven, about 1 pound of CO² is saved!
