Biking Instead of Driving

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

I know that biking is not for everyone but you can't get a more environmentally friendly form of transportation.  I was hoping to get a sense of how many people in this community bike instead of drive for environmental reasons and if so do you keep track of your gas saved?  

 

As of 2011, transportation made up 28% of US national energy consumption and 60% of that was for passenger vehicles.  90% of urban trips taken that are 2 miles or less are taken by car.

It's nearly impossible to live car-free in small-town USA, at least with a family and one or two cellos. We drive. But I use my bike inside town (3-5mile range) in all but the coldest / snowiest weather. Every bit helps.
