CAMPAIGN: Pedal Power! May is National Bike Month


Oftentimes clients seeking to live a sustainable lifestyle are interested in incorporating exercise into their personal sustainability plan.  As a professional consultant, I have the opportunity to work with individuals and businesses to integrate sustainability concepts into the workplace and daily life.  Naturally, cycling is a sustainability concept that meets both worlds: business and individuals and it is also considered good exercise.  

In honor of May being National Bike month, following are ways in which cycling contributes to healthy living, living a sustainable lifestyle and also helps the environment.    
  • Cycling as alternative transportation helps the environment by reducing carbon emissions.

  • Bicycles emit virtually no pollution when in use; they require far less materials, energy and waste in their production than even the ‘greenest’ car.   

  • Cycling offers a certain connection to the open air and the surrounding trees.  It's amazing how usual surroundings look different when on a bike.

  • Cycling can be done by toddlers, teenagers, youngsters and adults as well.  It can be used as personal time to reflect upon your day or a means to unite friends for regular rides.

  • Regular participation in a cycling routine naturally shifts your focus to include thoughts of the weather, areas in your community to ride, road safety, and traffic.  Thereby increasing your awareness of the link between the environment and your community.

  • Enjoy the freedom your bike gives you- go places your car can't.
