Bicycling is good for your health.

It is good for the economy.

It is good for the environment.

Six good reasons to bicycle:

  1. It is good exercise. A fit body is a healthy body.
  2. Children learn better after a walk or bike ride to school.
  3. A car costs about $8,000 a year. Bicycles cost about $350.
  4. It is less expensive to build bike paths than roads for cars.
  5. Bikes take less space to park.
  6. Bicycling makes less pollution than driving cars.
