Bikes Power People and Businesses

A little over a month ago I wrote a story called “Pedaling to Profit: The Upswing of Bike Powered Business.” It got picked up by the Huffington Post, and then today none other than Boing Boing decided to give it a mention. Needless to say, I’m stoked.

This can only mean one thing: bikes are hot. And if businesses are running their operations on two wheels, you can too. Even fair-weather cyclists no longer have an excuse, it’s finally spring! So pump up your wheels and take your classy ride out for a spin. Need help? Read this great article on Chelsea Green called “Spring Has Sprung: Now Get Off Your Fat Ass and Bike to Work.”

What can bike commuting do for you? Apparently:

* add over 2 years to their life expectancy
* have the general fitness and health of someone 10 years younger
* are 50% less likely to experience depression

Go get on it!
