Biking to Work - Green Living Tip Brought to you by Ideal Bite
Think peeps who bike to work are crazy? Maybe - helmet hair and dried sweat don't make for the best postwork date. Luckily, we've got tips to assuage your top five cycling reservations, just in time for National Bike to Work Week (May 11-15). It's gonna be insane.
- Losing it (pollution, that is). Every gallon of gasoline we burn creates about 20 pounds of climate-change-causing CO2, making commuting by bike way eco-friendly.
- A crazy physique. Casual biking burns about 173 calories per hour.
- Saving up for therapy. A typical U.S. family spends nearly $8,000 per year operating a car, while a bike might cost $50 for an annual tune-up.
Jen From Renewable Choice Says: Many of the employees here at Renewable Choice bike to work on a regular basis, including our CEO! I am super excited about this tip, and bike to work week, as I am procuring a sweet new bike for myself this week! I can't wait to bike to work (and everywhere else) every day this summer, sooo good for me and extra good for the planet! ~Jen
