The Benefits of Cycling

Bicycles are gaining popularity because they provide exercise and efficiency. In the United States, obesity-related deaths currently total 300,000 a year. Not only does cycling reduce traffic congestion and pollution, but it's the healthiest way to travel -- for both you and the environment.

In many cities in the United States, bikes provide mobility that cars cannot match. More than four fifths of all urban police departments now have some of their force on bicycles. Officers on bikes can usually reach the scene of a crime before those in squad cars, typically making 50% more arrests per day.
