Photo of the Day: Bike vs. Car.

Found this floating around on facebook with the caption: “NY artist is spray painting this image on sidewalks.” Pretty darn cool if you ask me.

“When I see an adult on a bicycle, I do not despair for the future of the human race.” ~ H.G. Wells

A few bike vs. car stats:

$5,713 : The average amount of money you could save each year if you used a bike instead of a car.

410: The average number of calories you could burn per hour by pedaling at a moderate pace.

36: The average number of hours you could gain back each year by avoiding rush-hour traffic.

20: The number of minutes per week spent cycling that could lower your risk of heart disease.
