Bike Pic March 31, life is more enjoyable running errands by bike

With 30 Days of Biking beginning tomorrow, using a bike to run errands could make life more enjoyable and create less of a carbon footprint. Maybe its time to start planning that #NextBikeAdventure. Have you registered for 30-days of biking yet, it’s free?

According to EPA’s emissions and trends, the number of vehicle miles traveled by passenger cars and light-duty trucks increased 35% from 1990 to 2013. In 2013, greenhouse gas emissions from transportation accounted for about 27% of total U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, making it the second-largest contributor to U.S. greenhouse gas emissions after the Electricity sector. With the continued trend in current transportation growth, those emissions rates are predicted to double. 

Consider using your bike in tandem with your car, bus or a train, to run errands, commute to work or on your next vacation. See more friendly places to ride and explore the new Minnesota Bike/Hike Guide.
