Encouraging Bicycle Commuters

By spokesman | September 9, 2008

The video below is from a British project called CycleHero that aims to increase bicycle commuting by touting the environmental benefits.

There have been many incidents between motorists and bicyclists in the press lately.  That is why I have been glad to see a number of initiatives to encourage bicycle commuting both from industry and Government.  While the United States will never be a bicycling society like Holland and bikes alone can’t solve our energy and transportation problems, some growth in bicycle commuting can help.  Trek is behind an initiative call One World Two Wheels  to encourage bike commuting.  The Trek website is tracking the environmental impact of people that pledge to commute.  Cliff Bar is sponsoring a commuting initiative called the 2 mile challenge  to encourage bike riding.  Their website includes a custom mapping application to identify the distance to nearby stores, restaurants and other merchants.  The recent Democratic and Republican political conventions had bike sharing programs where people took 7523 rides for 41,724 miles burning over 1,000,000 calories and reducing their carbon footprint by 14.6 metric tons.  Complete details are in this press release on the Freewheelin Bike Sharing Project

I gathered the commuting facts listed below from several websites including the US Dept of Transportation, Dartmouth College and the State of Delaware DOT in addition to the Trek and Cliff Bar sites mentioned earlier.  

As a nation, we take a large number of short trips, many of which can be replaced by a bicycle commute.  Even if only a small percentage of these trips are done by bike, the results can be significant.
