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

With the start of construction season, using a bike to run errands could make life more enjoyable and create less of a carbon foot print.

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 of U.S. greenhouse gas emissions after the Electricity sector. With the continued trend in current transportation growth by 2020 those emissions rate 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 in the new Minnesota Bike/Hike Guide.
