So I've started biking to work 4-5 days a week for numerous reasons. It's actually been great and I was compiling a list of the benefits I've seen so far. I'm lucky enough to have showers at the office I can use so that helps out a lot! I'm one month in now and I started looking at some figures.
biking to work stats
6 miles each way
38.28 lbs carbon per day reduced from the air by not driving
585 calories burned per day
1.97 gallons of gas each day saved ($180 a month saved!)
$15 a month insurance discount for limited vehicle usage.
So all in all I'm easily saving over $200 a month, helping to clean the air and getting a great workout. No looking back now.
