In the past ten years, commuting by bicycle in the United States has increased by almost 50%. Studies have shown that commuting by bike is great for your health and the environment. Biking can help lower blood pressure, boost energy, improve brain power, and reduce anxiety. More bicycle commuters also means improved air quality, especially in cities with denser populations and more traffic. Biking has serious financial benefits, too. Commuting by bike can save you money on gasoline, motor oil, and other car-related expenses.
