Infographic: How Bikes Improve Everything!

Ok, maybe a bit of an overstatement, but I still like the infographic; sometimes it is easiest to explain really complicated, heavy issues using an image:

From Sustainable Business Oregon:

If the entire European Union boasted average cycling miles like Denmark’s the region’s emissions would drop by 25 percent. This according to the European Cycling Foundation.

But a cool infographic from a Northwest coalition of health care management advocates also points out the health benefits of bike commuting. For example: The average worker will lose 13 pounds in their first year of biking to work.

The group also posits that Portland’s investment in bike-commuting infrastructure will save the city millions in health care expenses.
