Bikes and Health: What Can We Learn from Europe? (Infographic)
Are we Americans driving ourselves to obesity… literally? Yep, we love our cars here… but our reliance on them for nearly all of our transportation could be killing us… and costing us a ton of money. We’ve looked before at the economic impact of bicycling infrastructure, but creating more opportunity for biking could also save us a bundle on health care costs… and we only need to look to Europe for evidence.
Spend some time with the facts on this infographic, and then let us know what you think. Are we shooting ourselves in the foot financially (as well as health-wise) by not investing in better bicycling infrastructure?
