Why Do You Bike?

Written by Boston Biker on Mar 29

MassBike is calling for stories related to cycling, if you have an awesome one they will give you prizes!

I also saw a link to this infographic there.


I think it sums up some good reasons to ride your bike, but we all know the main one (and the one that is missing from this infographic), its super fun!

    You’re absolutely right that they should have put “Fun” in the info graphic. Admittedly, on the original site where the graphic appears (at http://www.peopleforbikes.org/pages/why_we_ride ), they *talk* about it being fun, but it should have been on the graphic. I would also have put something about reducing US oil consumption (and thus reducing our dependency on energy imports).

    One of the things I put on my personal list is that it’s faster and more convenient than public transportation. But I’m not sure whether that would apply more generally. There are certainly some people to whom that would NOT apply, at least not all the time.

    What should NOT be there is the “47% of Americans would like to see more bike lanes…” one. Sure, a well-designed bike lane can be useful, but don’t go around implying that if the reader doesn’t have a bike lane in her neighborhood that she can’t go out and ride.
