A few facts to motive you (and me) to ride this month:
- Cycling burns 600 calories an hour
On a bicycle you can travel 3 times faster than you can walk, for the same amount of energy.
- On a bicycle you can travel up to 2577.5 miles on the energy equivalent of a single gallon of gasoline. (that's some SERIOUS mpgs!)
- Twenty bicycles can be parked in the same space taken up by one car.
- Cycling is great exercise: leisurely cycling (around 12 mph) burns calories at the same rate as very brisk walking (faster than 4mph)
