The Bike

The bicycle stands alone as a triumph of engineering. The combination of wheels, gears, and a few levers, is the most efficient mechanism of transportation ever devised for humans over land.

Transportation Energy Efficiency

Regardless of whether you ride for fun, fitness, or transportation the bike extends its benefits to recreational and utilitarian riders alike.

Biking improves overall health and is lauded by doctors as a low-impact activity with strength (anaerobic) and cardiovascular (aerobic) elements. Riding is a low-impact activity in more ways than one.

This ultra-efficient machine can minimizes our footprint on the planet.
Air pollution free, the bike burns calories for fuel.

"A bikeway is a symbol that shows that a citizen on a $30 bicycle is equally important as a citizen on a $30,000 car." Enrique Penalosa

Riding a bike is also good for social equity.  Facilities for non-motorized traffic benefit low-income adults, children, young adults, elderly, and handicapped that may not have automobile access.

No paving paradise to put up a parking lot and no smashing people to bits.
How could such a machine be overlooked?

There is inherent good in riding a bicycle for any reason.
Every rider helps raise public awareness of this brilliant machine.
